Microship board - EnterpriseTECH inventor

Do you want to know if your research results or early-stage technology has commercial potential?  Cambridge Judge Business School invites you to submit a project proposal  to EnterpriseTECH - entrepreneurship education with real-world experience.

Cambridge Judge Business School writes:

EnterpriseTECH is a real-world learning experience with a lecture series, workshops and a project providing an intellectual and practical foundation in entrepreneurship. This learning-by-doing team-based programme is 12-weeks long and runs twice a year, with starts in September and December.

If selected, a team will work on your project over 12-weeks, applying the learning of the lectures to your real-world project. They will research the market, commercial advantages and applications of your idea and put together a commercial feasibility report, a video infomercial and deliver a pitch. Please note, we usually expect our inventor teams to have some form of demonstrable results and be lead by a senior lab head/researcher or CxO of an early-stage venture etc.

Project proposal deadline: 6 September 2021
