This document provides a summary of a recent mentoring event held at thr university. The findings from our research with women founders highlighted the importance of finding ‘relatable mentors’. These are women who have successfully created a spinout willing to share their experiences with other women researchers going through the process of spinning out or thinking about commercialising their research. In the light of these findings we recommended that institutions support the development of ‘relatable mentors’ networks of successful women founders both within and outside academia.
