Opportunities for inventors

EnterpriseTECH for inventors

Are you an inventor from within the University of Cambridge or a company within the greater Cambridge area? Are you working on a novel technology that you believe has potential for commercialisation? Engaging with EnterpriseTECH can help.

By performing market research, commercial evaluation and identifying routes to market, EnterpriseTECH helps you to establish the commercial potential of your inventions and to highlight a pathway to developing a commercialisation strategy.

Inventors taking part in EnterpriseTECH:

  • gain better understanding of the commercial potential of their invention/science-based idea including applications, market size and routes to market
  • receive a feasibility report to take their idea forward such as finding industrial/commercial partners, putting together a team and applying for a patent.

What is involved?

Our EnterpriseTECH students are postgraduates (MRes, MPhil and PhD) and undergraduates from different science and technology departments across the University. They work in teams on each project accepted. In return, you commit to meeting the teams at the relevant programme launch, answering any questions by email or skype and attending your team's final assessed presentations at the end of the programme.
