Dr. Cavendish has redefined the boundaries of innovation, earning her a well-deserved nomination for the Most Innovative Business Leader award in the Business Leader Awards 2023.

Established in 2019, Quantum Leap Innovations Ltd. was the brainchild of Dr. Cavendish, a renowned physicist and serial entrepreneur with a track record of developing ground-breaking technologies.

This pioneering solar technology harnesses the power of artificial photosynthesis, converting sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into clean, sustainable energy. By effectively replicating nature’s most efficient energy conversion process, Dr. Cavendish’s brainchild has the potential to transform the renewable energy sector and contribute significantly to reducing the world’s carbon footprint.
