Kickstart your entrepreneurial career and start developing your venture at the next Venture Creation Weekend from 23 to 25 June 2017 at Cambridge Judge Business School. It's a chance to test your biotech or healthcare business idea, build a team and pitch to investors in 50 hours!

  • Are you interested in getting involved in entrepreneurship in biotech and healthcare?
  • Do you have a novel biotech/healthcare idea or application that would transform the lives of many people?

The Entrepreneurship Centre is working in partnership with AstraZeneca and the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs (OPdA) at the University of Cambridge to offer aspiring entrepreneurs and innovators the chance to explore opportunities, ideas and applications in a range of technologies such as novel biological targets, therapeutics and research technologies, digital health (including artificial intelligence, connected data sets), diagnostics or any transformative healthcare solution.

Venture Creation Weekends provide a hands-on experience where aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if their start-up ideas are viable. Bring your enthusiasm and creativity, your best idea and inspire others to join your team! You’ll get feedback from our experienced mentors and pitch your idea to a panel of industry experts and investors to find out whether it is viable.

Testimonials from attendees at previous Venture Creation Weekends

"I could not have spent a better weekend anywhere else. The attention to detail of making sure that I was enabled to both learn from the best, and perform at my best was amazing. I highly recommend that anyone either thinking of starting a business or already enjoying a new venture role, should attend this amazing half workshop / half lecture weekend. The icing on the cake is the quality of all the people - both staff, mentors and participants."

"This has truly been an unforgettable weekend and the mentorship offered was fantastic. Thank you for bringing us all together it has been an amazing experience to begin our journey. A special thank you to Hanadi ...thank you for inspiring us all."
