The Venture Catalyst Challenge is one of the flagship programs run by Imperial Enterprise Lab
, Imperial's central hub and dedicated space where everyone has the opportunity to translate their ideas from science & technology into practice.
HOW CAN I APPLY?
You have created something as part of your coursework
, an idea
out of your research
or that you've been messing around with on weekends
. You want to go one step beyond a score out of 100; to turn your innovation
into a tangible impact in the world
, a viable career in itself. For the last four years, Imperial postgrads, alumni and undergrads
have gone through this program
Since its inception, participants have raised millions
in proof-of concept funding. They have gone on to participate in accelerator programs, to sell everything
from dental practice management software to DNA research engines for genetic experimentation.Very few started the VCC with anything more than a team and an idea.
