About this Event 

The WE Innovate Final 2021 is an opportunity to celebrate the incredible achievements of the female founders who participated in the programme this year and provides a platform to showcase the incredible progress being made in women’s entrepreneurship at Imperial.

This year, we have once again had to move the event online due to the pandemic. However, we will still be bringing you all the action from the final via a livestream, where you can watch the finalists pitch their ideas and answer questions from the judges.

Finally, our expert panel of world class entrepreneurial, academic and industry experts will determine the overall winners, who will receive a share of the £30k prize fund. In the week leading up to the final, audience members can also visit the website and vote for their favourite ideas in the ‘People’s Choice Award’, with an exclusive mentoring package up for grabs!

Whilst we’d love to be with you in-person, we’re excited to be able to showcase the WE Innovate venture ideas with students, alumni and industry experts across the world – sharing the teams’ success on a global stage.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to watch the livestream and learn more about the latest ideas set to make waves in the health, environment, edTech and consumer sectors!

We would like to extend a special thanks to BP for the sponsorship of the 2021 programme and the prize fund.
