Do you have an idea for a potential business venture? Would you like the chance to transform your vision into reality? Would you like to be part of a new start-up?

The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) is offering budding entrepreneurs and creative minds the chance to practise real alchemy at Cambridge Judge Business School from 28th to 30th June. This high-octane startup weekend will be a melting pot of ideas, talent, mentors and investors leading to the creation of new venture opportunities. It is designed to motivate and enable you to transform your ideas into reality whether you have a technology, social or creative enterprise.

“This inspiring weekend can be the catalyst to turn dreams into gold. It can help make you a million through the generation of a viable and meaningful enterprise or affect the lives of millions”

Shai Vyakarnam, CfEL director

The Real Alchemist Startup Weekend will bring together students, graduates, academics, professionals, entrepreneurs and creative minds who want to spend the summer developing venture ideas, forming teams and getting ready to pitch to investors.

Those ventures voted the best of the weekend will get spaces to join Accelerate Cambridge, the start-up “accelerator” established by Cambridge Judge Business School in May 2012. Accelerate Cambridge aims to help teams of entrepreneurs turn an idea into a business, to launch, and then to keep going. It will provide lucky winners with the chance to access a powerful group of Cambridge mentors and University alumni.

SIGN UP SOON! There are limited places. Please register soon to secure your place.
