Sam Philpott

Engagement Manager

Scientific by background, Sam completed his MSci in Materials Science and Metallurgy at the University of Cambridge. Not wanting to stay in academia, he is enjoying assisting in market validation and strategy development as part of RIG’s Industrial Decarbonisation and Circular Economy practice, working with two early stage companies each pioneering an innovative industrial technology.

Before joining RIG, he spent a year working in business development at a technology startup in Cambridge. Away from the office, Sam generally enjoys spending time being active outdoors; he is a keen sportsman, having spent the majority of his waking hours at university rowing for the lightweight boat club.

He is looking forward to further developing his commercial knowhow, building upon his financial modelling skills and the opportunity to utilise his background by working with novel advanced materials.
