Throughout the academic year the Venture Creation programme will consist of six cohorts. 每一组将集中于一个特定的主题或问题. 各组学生将通过以下阶段毕业.



Aspiring entrepreneurs and their ideas with be matched with potential founding team members to explore and validate the possibilities of turning an idea into a viable opportunity for a new venture. In a supportive, safe but challenging space, workshops and mentoring sessions will guide the teams through the process of capturing an idea’s potential and value. This will help the teams to develop and experiment with innovative business models and preparing their first pitch.

The weekend will end with a guided session on identifying a clear and compelling way forward for each team and team member with the identification of small but meaningful action steps.


Running once a month, the Venture Creation Labs are a mix of informal online group mentoring and face-to-face peer review sessions. These are designed to help the teams build momentum and develop the skills and networks they need.

这些实验室向所有参加过周末培训的人开放.  出席是开放的原始团队或该团队的新版本, or to individuals with a new idea that emerged from their experiences at the Venture creation event.

Diversity is key to the running of these Labs so attendees will benefit from networking with early-stage ventures across different sectors but at the same time will have access to experienced mentors with relevant sector experience.

Email [email protected] for more information.



The Venture Creation programme is about learning through the act of creating. Apply your creativity and problem-solving skills in your chosen area of expertise/interests and identify and explore the opportunities for innovation. You can then develop your own personal development programme with the support of the programme. This may include;

  • new venture creation
  • 了解你在学习和研究中的可能性
  • 确定新的研究项目
  • applying the learning to your organisation or your career search and choices.


By joining a Venture Creation cohort you will build long-lasting relationships based on common values and interests. This can lead to you being part of a founding team or on your way to finding your founders and even a potential investor.

Another possibility is that you may walk away with a job offer or consider taking up a position in a sector that you had not considered working in before.

Actually launch a business

The programme has been designed to offer the type of support required by new ventures in their early stages and to provide a supportive space in which to validate an idea and build and unite a team behind it.

Gain valuable insights

Being part of the Venture Creation programme gives you access to insights from industry experts, coaches, successful entrepreneurs and your peers to help you maximise the potential in your idea and your team.
