Cambridge University Entrepreneurs was founded in 1999 by three people. Ten years on, CU Entrepreneurs have evolved to being a key part of the University's ecosystem for supporting and accelerating entrepreneurship and innovation.
CU Entrepreneurs run one of the most successful student-run business creation competitions in the world. Since 1999 we have awarded over £500k in prize money to more than 40 start-ups and have seen many of them develop into successful companies. These companies have contributed greatly to the local region and beyond, producing over 110 full time jobs. Collectively, CUE alumni companies have gone on to secure over £42 million pounds of investment.
Our goal is to promote and nurture entrepreneurship in Cambridge and beyond. However we do this in quite a unique way. Our business creation competition, along with the training, mentoring and networking events in support of it, take you from idea to business in under a year.
We encourage you to get involved. Four ways to get involved with our activities are:
1. Enter the competition
2. Offer training, mentoring or sponsorship
3. Join the committee
4. Attend events
Don't miss your opportunity to join us on this stimulating journey of making enterprise happen.
