Lectures & workshops

EnterpriseTECH lectures.

The lectures and workshops are provided by Cambridge Judge Business School faculty, staff, fellows and specially-invited speakers.

The content covers core themes supporting the processes involved in commercialising emerging technologies. This taught content helps prepare teams for conducting their project research and writing commercial feasibility reports. We also invite speakers to give wider-ranging talks and case studies on project related themes with the purpose of providing enrichment in those topic specific areas.
