What is impulse

  • The impulse programme enables the development of high-potential technology and life sciences innovation into commercial propositions.

    • It is an established, 12-week "action-learning" programme, with a sharp focus on prioritising and developing high-potential business cases.

  • The core of impulse’s approach is a network of passionate mentors and experienced entrepreneurs who act as role models and provide valuable guidance from this highly respected, unique Cambridge innovation cluster.


Is impulse for me? 

  • Are you working on a research topic in technology or life sciences, in which you see potential for commercialisation?

    • Do you have an innovative idea that you think has market potential and you need support for implementing it? 

  • Have you already started to implement your idea, including by incorporating a company and/or forming a team, but you need the right advice and network to bring it to market? 

    • Are you ready to take the next steps to turn your innovative idea into reality?
