At Imperial Enterprise Lab we’re passionate about inspiring the next generation of student innovators and entrepreneurs.
We help students to think outside the box, break boundaries and dare to be different. We think anyone can be an entrepreneur and believe diversity is a competitive advantage not a tick box.
Bringing together people from different disciplines, cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences to look situations from new angles is how problems get solved and, we all win.
Whether you want to test an idea, tackle a pressing social or environmental challenge, develop new skills to help you in your career, start a business or just meet interesting new people we’re here to help you.
From student competitions to speaker events and from hackathons to skills seminars, co-working space, and expert mentors we offer all the support you need, free of charge and accessible to everyone.
Great minds may not think alike, but they do start here.
