During the coronavirus outbreak, we are adapting to these extraordinary circumstances and a prolonged period of uncertainty. It is practically impossible to run Impulse’s physical version during these unprecedented times, but we felt deeply that Impulse 2020 should go on.

Impulse is driven by entrepreneurs, creative spirits and experimental mind-sets, and we are adapting to this change. After some conversations with our entrepreneurial mentors, we will deliver the Impulse Programme 2020 online as scheduled with some modifications of sessions where the face-to-face interactions are necessary to follow-up.

Are you:

  • a PhD student or member of academic research staff at a university
  • a founder or director of an existing young start-up
  • a researcher, engineer or manager from a large corporate
  • a R&D Manager with ideas for spin-out ventures
  • a Post graduate student, considering future career paths and exploring entrepreneurial opportunities ​

​and want to learn what it takes to bring a new idea to market and test your innovative concept?

Impulse serves as a catalyst for entrepreneurship in individuals and organisations. The programme is about strong action learning and result driven where participants bring their innovative ideas to the

table. It acts as a learning vehicle with a sharp focus on prioritising and developing “high-potential” business cases. The core of Impulse’s approach is to engage experienced entrepreneurs to act as role models and to provide guidance at the heart of the Cambridge Phenomenon.
