Entrepreneurial Learning & Support


The University offers many ways to support entrepreneurship amongst its researchers, at all stages of their academic career and business development.


  • The Entrepreneurship Centre, at the Judge Business School, hosts regular seminars and networking sessions (e.g. the free-to-attend series Enterprise Tuesday) as well as running a variety of tailored learning programmes to support researchers at different stages of innovation.
  • The Maxwell Centre, offers PhD students, Post-Docs and researchers in the fields of Physical Sciences and Technology early entrepreneurial support via its Impulse Programme .
  • Post-doctoral researchers may be interested in joining Entrepreneurial Post-Docs of Cambridge (EPOC) to stay abreast of current opportunities. Students wishing to test out their business ideas and the market “need” may be interested in gaining hands-on experience through Cambridge i-Teams.
  • For anyone seeking support in commercialising their research (e.g. via consultancy, reagent sales, patenting/licensing or spin-out companies), I can help you connect with the University’s technology transfer office; Cambridge Enterprise
  • Cambridge Enterprise have a free online course for anyone who would like to learn about consulting. 

Please get in touch at any stage, if you would like to discuss a business idea / new technology / ways to commercialise the outcomes of your research.


 


Innovation & Technology Competitions


Please get in touch if you would like any assistance with:


i) identifying local, national and international technology competitions in your field.


ii) preparing applications


iii) pitching your ideas
