First E-Lab Social Venture Residential begins


A total of 42 students are taking part in the first ever E-Lab Social Venture Residential, run in collaboration with the Mastercard Foundation Scholars Program and Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation, at  Cambridge Judge Business School. The students come from 16 different Cambridge Colleges: Christ's, Clare, Fitwilliam, Girton, Homerton, Jesus, King's, Lucy Cavendish, Magdalene, Murray Edwards, Newnham, Selwyn, Sidney Sussex, St John's, St. Edmund's, and Wolfson.

This new Residential is an inspiring introduction to the social venture sector. In an inclusive, supportive and friendly atmosphere, students will have the opportunity to share and test their ideas with others and learn from the experience of successful social entrepreneurs.

The students – from a wide range of subjects including Machine Learning, Mathematics, Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Engineering, Psychology and Behavioural Sciences, Anthropology, Architecture, Archaeology, and Human Sciences, Medicine, Public Policy, and Development Studies, Entrepreneurship and MBA, as well as African Studies, Classics and Languages  – begin a three-day residential training programme prior to the start of the new academic term, with a series of events and workshops to follow.
