What is The Imperial Techcelerate Programme?
A programme for postdoc researchers who want to fast-track the commercial development of new ideas and build their entrepreneurial skill-set.
Developed using industry best practice, the programme has been designed to meet the needs of Imperial’s postdoctoral research community through a combination of hands-on experiential learning opportunities combined with regular access to business experts and Imperial’s vast entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Imperial Techcelerate takes an evidence-based approach to entrepreneurship, where participants formulate their customer value propositions and business model hypotheses first and then test these by getting out and speaking with potential customers, partners, suppliers and competitors over the course of the programme.
This programme enables participants to bridge the gap between research idea and the real world and, crucially, to understand the commercial potential for a new idea.
