£3,000 per corporate delegate (accommodation not included)
£2,000 (or £1,700/£1,800 early bird discount*) per individual delegate (i.e. individuals funding themselves for early stage business ventures or startups; if you are supported by other funds, we are happy to discuss the fee level further.)
£1,200 (or £1,020/£1,080 early bird discount*) University of Cambridge delegate

This fee includes all programme sessions, course materials, buffet lunches and the dinners that are included in the course timetable. Overnight accommodation is not included.

* There is an early bird discount of 15% until 24 February 2020, and 10% until 30 March 2020.

Accommodation can be booked in one of the Cambridge colleges on a first come, first served basis (places are limited). For accommodation enquiries please email the Ignite team at

Cancellation policy

All fees must be paid in full per the invoice payment terms. Our contract with you commences when we write to confirm that we have accepted you as a delegate on the Ignite programme.  Cancellations are not accepted.  

In the event that a delegate is unable to obtain a visa, once we have received official confirmation from the Embassy, we will refund the fee in full.

Note: If a delegate does not attend, the full fee will be retained as a cancellation charge. Where accommodation is booked, it is the delegate's responsibility to pay any cancellation charges to the college.

Substitution of delegates

We discourage the substitution of delegates for this course as we believe that the person with the idea and the internal fire for change is the true candidate. Substitution will require two weeks' notice to allow time for careful selection, and a new application must be submitted.


College accommodation is arranged for delegates. We will send further details once your application has been accepted and confirmed.

Please note that the accommodation is student accommodation. If you would like to arrange alternative accommodation in Cambridge, please contact the Cambridge Tourist Information Centre


Applications are now open for the 2020 annual Ignite programme, taking place 28 June-3 July 2020.

Deadline: 12:00, Monday 25 May 2020
