First of all, we have received the funding from DSTL. After spending 2.5 days on writing a proposal on magical material for defense, combining uncombinable expertise of 5 people, and then happily drinking after submission and a strong belief that this is a joke-proposal, we find ourselves with essentially £80k and involved completely with different projects 2 weeks before the pitching day. In the end Jose decided to take over completely, add Francis (two founders that over the course of DSV program killed maximum projects) and all the others helping part-time. It’s an amazing research project and Jose is very good in bringing people to the team - several scientifical and commercial advisors in couple of days (it is easier to connect with people when you start an email with "I ve got money")

Good luck to all
