In partnership with Eastern Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) and Idea Space, the Cambridge Judge Business School Entrepreneurship Centre is excited to be offering this inaugural Venture Creation Weekend.

Since its onset, COVID-19 (coronavirus) has been the focal point of recent healthcare innovations. Over the last 2 years we have seem numerable advancements in medicine and health technologies as well as new partnerships and collaborations emerging. However, we have also seen changes to our society, issues around access and inclusion to healthcare and an increasing demand on scarce resources.

As society moves from pandemic to endemic, opportunity for re-evaluating, reimagining, and reinventing the future of healthcare remains. The landscape for innovative disruption is wide open!

Whether you have an innovative idea or are passionate about working in an innovative team looking to disrupt the future, this weekend is your opportunity to explore the possibilities and, with the input from experienced mentors, take the first steps towards creating a new venture with the potential to redesign the future of health. The programme will be structured to take a multi-faceted approach across medicine, technology and the built environment enhancing your understanding of the emerging landscape of health and wellbeing and the opportunities for innovation.

How the Venture Creation programme works

By signing up, you will become part of the Venture Creation: Healthcare Professionals cohort. You and your cohort will move through the following stages:

Stage 1: The Orientation Weekend

Duration: 17:30–21:00 Friday 14 October and 09:00-20:00 Saturday 15 October 2022

Aspiring entrepreneurs and their ideas with be matched with potential founding team members to explore and validate the possibilities of turning an idea into a viable opportunity for a new venture.

In a supportive, safe but challenging space, workshops and mentoring sessions will guide the teams through the process of capturing an idea’s potential and value, helping the teams to develop and experiment with innovative business models and preparing their first pitch.

The weekend will end with a guided session on identifying a clear and compelling way forward for each team and team member with the identification of small but meaningful action steps.

Stage 2: The Venture Creation Labs

Venture Creation Labs are a mix of informal online and/or face to face mentoring and peer review sessions designed to help the teams build momentum and develop the skills and networks they need.

These Labs are open to anyone who has attended an orientation weekend. Attendance is open to the original team or a new version of that team, or to individuals with a new idea that emerged from their experiences at the Venture creation event.

Diversity is key to the running of these Labs so attendees will benefit from networking with early-stage ventures across different sectors but at the same time will have access to experienced mentors with relevant sector experience.
