Cambridge Venture Project
You will consult for one of the entrepreneurial firms in the Cambridge area, giving you the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of some of the challenges faced by innovators in high-risk, high-pressure environments. Projects cover all aspects of the entrepreneurial spectrum and may be with brand new start-ups - small, innovative companies like Antenova or Hypertag - through to leaders such as Cambridge Antibody Technology.

"My Cambridge Venture Project was my first real interaction with the not-for-profit sector. We were consulting for The Prospects Trust, an organic farm which provides horticultural training for people with learning difficulties. It was inspiring to see an organisation which could combine two important agendas: the environment and social inclusion. Coming from a private sector background, working with the not-for-profit sector provided both new challenges and new learning opportunities. Again, I could only feel admiration for the achievements of charities operating with limited funds and with limited resources."

"During the Cambridge Venture Project, I had the opportunity to work with a diverse team of classmates coming from five different continents and all with very different personalities. Working together to make an impact on our client's future business strategy was quite exciting."
Diary of a Cambridge Venture Project
"The client was very excited about the project and about getting something valuable at the end of it. This project represented a real business need for them, not just a training exercise."
