EnterpriseTECH and EnterpriseTECH STAR are unique educational experiences geared towards learning about entrepreneurship. EnterpriseTECH is a team-based activity focused solely on learning, whilst EnterpriseTECH STAR is for EnterpriseTECH student alumni to start building their own businesses whilst growing personally as entrepreneurs.
We welcome applications to become a student on EnterpriseTECH from anyone anywhere, although our usual cohorts are predominantly science and engineering researchers and undergraduates. We also invite applications from inventors with real-world project proposals for student teams to work on. To be eligible for EnterpriseTECH STAR with your own concept for a new venture, you have to have completed EnterpriseTECH as a student.
In four years, over 640 students (incl. 62% PhD students, 12% postdocs) have earned Certificates of Completion from EnterpriseTECH, and 130 inventors have benefited from the work conducted by our student teams on EnterpriseTECH. We have also launched 55 EnterpriseTECH STAR entrepreneurs, many of whom have gone on to raise seed funding for their ventures.
Our valued business and corporate sponsors help us create more opportunities for aspiring researcher-entrepreneurs to attend.
We also work with funding partners across the University of Cambridge to provide UK research council funded places.
Applications are now open. We review student applications on a rolling basis and offer places in advance of the published deadlines. All applicants have a short interview.
