• Are you interested in getting involved in entrepreneurship in biotech / healthcare sectors?
  • Do you have a novel biotech/healthcare idea or application that would transform the lives of many people?

Kickstart your entrepreneurial career and start developing your venture at the next Venture Creation Weekend from 23 to 25 June 2017 at Cambridge Judge Business School. It is a chance to test your idea, build a team and pitch to investors in 50 hours!

This weekend is for students, postdocs, scientists and researchers working on emerging technologies and innovations in biotech or healthcare who are interested in learning how to translate their ideas into ventures as part of a startup team.

The Entrepreneurship Centre is working in partnership with AstraZeneca and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPdA) at the University of Cambridge to offer aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators the chance to explore opportunities, ideas and applications in a range of technologies such as:

  • novel biological targets
  • therapeutics and research technologies
  • digital health (including artificial intelligence, connected data sets)
  • diagnostics
  • transformative healthcare solution

Venture Creation Weekends provide a hands-on experience where aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their startup ideas are viable. Bring your enthusiasm and creativity, your best idea and inspire others to join your team! You’ll get feedback from our experienced mentors and pitch your idea to a panel of industry experts and investors to find out whether it is viable. Following this event, one of teams will be invited onto the Accelerate Cambridge programme.

Tickets are £60 (standard) and £40 (student). The Weekend closes with a dinner on the Sunday evening.
