The Best Of Enterprise Week 2018
Our annual entrepreneurship event brings together the winners of all the start-up competitions from across the College in an IBP only exhibition, the Best of Enterprise week. Guests will have a chance to discuss cutting edge technology that developed from the latest outstanding research. During the reception, Professor Markus Perkmann will deliver a talk on entrepreneurship and innovation.
Imperial College College’s 17,000 students and 8,000 staff are expanding the frontiers of knowledge in science, medicine, engineering and business, and translating their discoveries into benefits for our society. In 2016-17 Imperial’s academic community generated 332 invention disclosures and filed 168 new patent applications. As of July 2017 it counted a total of 130 start ups.
The Entrepreneurship showcase is an IBP only event in collaboration with Imperial Enterprise Lab. Launched in October 2016, the Imperial Enterprise Lab is the hub for student innovation and entrepreneurship at the College. Enterprise Lab’s programmes, alongside its co-working space, are designed to help students develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and apply it to their own personal ventures and their professional lives. It aims to bring staff and students from all disciplines together with Imperial’s global community of alumni, friends, partners and businesses, to stimulate and support the development of the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs.
You will have the chance to meet a range of outstanding winners from this year’s Enterprise Week competitions, including those listed below. Find out more about Enterprise Lab’s programmes:
