Are you an ambitious entrepreneur, researcher, academic or scientist looking to transform an innovation and prepare it for commercial reality? Are you looking to invigorate innovation within your company, build skills and strengths in the R&D teams, maximise the potential of new ideas and revitalise business in these challenging economic times?

Ignite is an intensive, one-week training programme for aspiring entrepreneurs and corporate innovators from the hi-tech and life sciences sectors. The course is a blend of practical teaching sessions delivered by our world leading faculty, one-to-one clinics with experts, mentor sessions; and advice from experienced entrepreneurs and innovators. It provides delegates with the tools, contacts and confidence to transform their ideas into successful business projects or ventures.

The programme structure enables support to be tailored to fit the individual business idea and to focus on specific issues such as investment readiness, technical and market due diligence. Participants will end the week long activity by presenting their idea to a panel of experts and obtaining real time feedback. Contributors during the week include founders of global technology companies and venture capital firms.


“I met important contacts both within my own industry and also from other backgrounds. The mentoring sessions provided valuable experiences from people who were prepared to spend time polishing business plans.”
