Venture Creation Weekends

What are Venture Creation Weekends?

Cambridge Judge Business School's Hanadi Jabado and Simon Stockley talk to us about the Entrepreneurship Centre's Venture Creation Weekends for entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Develop, test and launch your business in 54 hours!

Venture Creation Weekends provide a hands-on experience where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their start-up ideas are viable. The winning team will get a prize and a place on the Accelerate Cambridge programme.

The next Venture Creation Weekend will take place on 3-5 March 2017 at Cambridge Judge Business School. The theme for the event is DisruptEd - Exploring Emerging Technology for Education

This three-day intensive event, organised with partnership with Cambridge English, will bring together technology and innovation entrepreneurs who want to address challenges in the education sector and apply new technologies at global level. Find out more and register
