The programme is delivered through a combined learning approach including practical workshops, industry mentoring, one to one advice with business professionals, investor pitch and individuals' homework, carrying out market research, and informal networking.


Workshops (face-to-face and online)

Serial entrepreneurs and successful innovators deliver our workshops. They engage with the business cases for our participants drawing on their extensive experience. Sharing practical insights and examples help our participants to question, refine and improve their business cases.


Mentor sessions (face-to-face and online)

Each mentor group has 4-6 participants. We assign participants with similar needs to each group, e.g. stage of idea development, industry requirements. Our mentors have worked with us for many years to support our participants with practical help, senior level mentoring and guidance. We select our mentors carefully, so that they are "more pull and push" in their mentoring style.


One-to one discussions (online)

We offer our participants a wide range of expert sessions with lawyers, accountants, marketers and other professional service providers to cover some of the key issues in advancing individual business projects. Participants can book these private, individual sessions based on their needs.


Networking (face-to-face and online)

Our "invitation only" events connect participants to the wider community of high profile entrepreneurs, investors, corporate intrapreneurs and business professionals from Cambridge and beyond. In a friendly atmosphere our participants can build their network.


Pitch Session (face-to-face and online)

Together with their mentors participants work towards a pitching session at the end of the programme. Our participants deliver their pitch in a safe, but challenging small group setting. Panel members, typically entrepreneurs, business angels, and venture capitalists, provide honest and detailed feedback to build confidence for successfully raising investments.
