Grow Meaningful Ventures, 15-17 March, 2013
Ideation = Ideas into action
This is the second Cambridge weekend event powered by Idea Transform, held at and in association with the Cambridge Judge Business School, supported by CfEL and Accelerate Cambridge. It is aimed both at students from within the University and other academic institutions and at the wider Cambridge/international entrepreneurial community.
- Open to all - bring an idea, find an idea, work on an idea
- Inspiring speakers, practical workshops, hands-on mentors
- Ongoing support if you want to go further after the weekend
This high energy event will bring together individuals with innovative ideas and the skills and support needed to help meaningful projects take that crucial first step towards success. A combination of hands-on, experienced mentors and inspiring keynote speakers will provide the environment for attendees to develop, verify and pitch their ideas within the event timescale.
At the end of the weekend, the panel of judges will select those projects that show most promise, all of which will benefit from ongoing mentoring and support.
