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!

This weekend is for students, postdocs, scientists and researchers working on emerging technologies and innovations in Biotech or Healthcare who are interested in learning how to translate their ideas into ventures as part of a startup team.

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.

To apply for a FREE place (£20 deposit - refundable after attending), exclusively available to postdocs applying through the OPdA, please apply here.

The deadline for applications is Thursday 22 June 2017.
