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.
