The Althea-Imperial partnership is a unique collaboration between a world-leading university for innovation and entrepreneurship (Imperial College London) and an internationally renowned social venture philanthropic foundation (The Althea Foundation). Celebrated entrepreneurs Dame Stephanie Shirley and Sherry Coutu CBE joined us to launch the Programme in October 2014.
Both the Programme and its associated £10,000 top prize have been designed to encourage top female students at Imperial College London to develop their entrepreneurial spirit and leadership skills. Through a series of exclusive development opportunities, including high-profile speakers, one-to-one expert advice and performance simulation training, these students have nurtured their innovative ideas into enterprising projects.
Join us for our final showcase event, where our selected finalists will present their pitches to a panel of academic and industry experts as they compete for a total of £20,000 available as prizes to take their projects forward.
