Frequently Asked Questions

How will it work?

Each team will be given a brief. Over 24 hours they will brainstorm, research and pitch their concepts. Successful teams will get the opportunity to take their designs to the next level with seed funding from the university to purchase your well needed materials to turn your concept to reality. They will then have 4 weeks to manufacture their products and sell them a local market of their choice, either Cambridge or Chelmsford! Winners take all!!


What this years theme?

The theme will be announced at the weekend Bootcamp. Here’s a tip - think seasonal.


How much will it cost me?

Absolutely nothing - we’re asking for everyone to pay a £25 deposit which is refundable upon attendance. Deposits will be refundable upon attendance throughout the course of the weekend. Please note, deposits will only be kept if students are absent without 48hours notice.

Where will we be selling?

We have sourced a number of market stalls in both Cambridge & Chelmsford on Saturday 8th March 2017 . You will have to pitch for your stall preference on Sunday 5th March 2017.

When does the team make a profit?

The university will give a ‘loan’ to each participating team (amount to be confirmed on Sunday 5th March) - you will make profit once you’ve broken even. You DO NOT have to spend the whole budget, for example, you could only spend £60 which means if you sell £300 worth of products, you will keep £240 profit.
