Venture Catalyst Challenge
The Venture Catalyst Challenge, powered by digital venture builder Blenheim Chalcot, supports deep science and early-stage tech startups founded by Imperial students.
WE Innovate is Imperial’s flagship female entrepreneurship education programme designed to support the next generation of women entrepreneurs to accelerate their startups. The six-month programme supports female students, developing an early stage business idea, to advance their leadership and entrepreneurial skills.
Student Society Fund
The student society fund is a pot of £15,000 especially dedicated to Imperial’s clubs and societies who want to develop the entrepreneurship skills of their members. From Chemistry to Chess, Physics to Photosoc, or Materials to Magic, the fund is open to all societies and clubs across College.
Collab_ offers a unique opportunity for PhD and MRes students across the College to form teams, develop innovative business ideas and then pitch these to a VIP panel of guests for the chance to win £5,000.
