Run by Adelina Chalmers a.k.a. “The Geek Whisperer”, the workshop will help you learn the skills you’ll need to form or get your start-up off the ground.

Due to limited space this workshop is strictly open to postdocs only.

If you are a postdoc working on innovative research and looking to start a company, Cambridge Enterprise is also organising a Business Plan Competition (launching 2nd May) exclusively for Cambridge University postdocs.

This workshop will help prepare you for the competition with:

  • what the judges want to see in your application and why
  • how do decide for yourself if this is a business with real potential
  • the key elements you need in your pitch to be successful.

All postdocs are welcome to attend the workshop regardless of whether you will be entering the later competition.

The workshop is free but registration in advance is essential - spaces are limited so reserve you place here.
