What is the Venture Catalyst Challenge?
The Venture Catalyst Challenge enables Imperial students and alumni, within three years of graduation, to develop an innovative idea for commercialisation.
If you have created something as part of your coursework, have an idea that spins out of your research, or have a project you’ve been messing around with on weekends, then the VCC is for you!
Participating in the VCC is your opportunity to turn your innovative idea into a tangible product. Scroll down to find out more about the programme and see what previous participants are up to now.
Applications for the Venture Catalyst Challenge 2019 are now closed, but keep your eyes peeled for details of the Grand Final which will be released in a few weeks!
