A total of 42 participants from five Cambridge Colleges will form the third cohort of the King’s Entrepreneurship Lab (E-Lab) programme, designed to support students of all disciplines in developing sustainable and ethical projects with a positive social and environmental impact.
The students – from a wide range of subjects including computer science and engineering, psychology and behavioural sciences, anthropology and human sciences, medicine, economics, as well as classics and languages – will begin a week-long residential training programme prior to the start of the new academic term, with a series of events and workshops following on throughout the year.
Co-Director of the E-Lab Kamiar Mohaddes commented:
We are excited that this is the first cohort where King's students will be joined by students from other Colleges and delighted to be collaborating with Christ’s, Murray Edwards, Trinity Hall and Wolfson. The cross-college initiative has been encouraged by our generous funders, including David Sainsbury (KC 1959) and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and aims to increase the impact we can make across collegiate Cambridge and for our students’ futures.
Established in September 2021 thanks to a generous donation by Malcolm McKenzie (KC 1977), the E-Lab is designed to support those wishing to explore a career path in innovation and business. The year-long programme offers the students mentoring and practical advice, and culminates in the opportunity to receive funding to take their ideas forward.
