Punchline Talks! The B!G interview with Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien

Neill famously started his business in his garage just over eleven years ago.

Its now one of the leading players in the field of super strong #graphene.

If you don't know what graphene is, or how he got to be running todays plc, well here's your chance to find out.

Graphene is going to revolutionise the way that products can be made and used - or so he says. Its still relatively early days for the Cheltenham based company but there is a big story to be told here. And Neill is a interesting, inspirational and nice guy to tell it.

This week they put Versarien produced graphene in concrete saving about 20% of the CO2 it would normally take to make at the same time reducing the amount of steel used.

Is this the wonder product that could help save the world? Serious question.
