Slingshot graduates from Oxford’s CDL Programme

After surviving 4 elimination rounds, Slingshot was proud to graduate from Oxford University’s Creative Destruction Labs (CDL) programme.

Based out of the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, Creative Destruction Lab (CDL) is a nonprofit organization that delivers an objectives-based program for massively scalable, seed-stage, science- and technology-based companies.

Working across 10 locations globally, CDL mentors founders who are developing innovations towards economic productivity and human welfare, and Slingshot is proud to become one of their 2021 graduates.

The CDL programme has challenged Slingshot to better refine our business strategy to ensure we can bring greatest value to our customers and partners later this year
