From E-Lab to V-Lab
Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19 and Imperial’s move to remote working and study, the Enterprise Lab co-working space will be closed until further notice and upcoming events have been postponed or moved online.
The good news is we’ve gone virtual! We’ve moved all of our Idea Surgeries, Business Coaching and Expert-in-Residence support online and are supporting MBA Connect in creating the COVID-19 Task Force. You can find out how they can support you and you venture here. and are working hard to ensure that our awesome community is still coming together, sharing ideas and supporting each other, albeit virtually.
Our community of Imperial’s innovators and entrepreneurs are still sharing great ideas, asking important questions and working out how to ‘get out of the building’ to speak to customers when you’re literally stuck IN the building. The Enterprise Lab will also be sharing our latest updates and some new virtual content on Slack and our social channels, so stay tuned!
Experts-in-Residence is a group of experts across a range of areas that are relevant for developing entrepreneurial ideas and building startup companies.
These individuals act as advisors for entrepreneurial student teams and startups who can demonstrate that they need the expertise. Sessions are scheduled throughout the year, and before you meet the expert you will be asked what you would like to speak about and may be given suggested resources to look over.
Some experts will have different levels of validation needed to prove that you are ready to meet them. For example, legal and IP experts are often needed even for very early stage startups, but PR and Sales, for instance, are often most beneficial at later stages.
We are fortunate to have experts with the following specialisms:
- Business Coaching
- Data Management
- Email Marketing
- Intellectual Property (IP)
- Product Development (Physical)
- Public Relations (PR)
- Team Building
- Team Management
We’re adding new experts all the time and you can read more about our current experts below.
