Thanks to a generous donation, the College has established The King’s Entrepreneurship Lab to equip students with entrepreneurial skills and support those wishing to explore a career path in innovation, entrepreneurship and business. With an emphasis on developing sustainable and ethical projects with a positive social and environmental impact, the Lab's activities will encompass a year-long programme for King’s students including an intensive week before the academic year, an Entrepreneur-in-Residence scheme, a monthly webinar series, visiting mentors, and much more!

Continuing King's undergraduates and graduate students can now apply for the 2021/22 Programme, starting in September. For more information contact the Lab Directors Kamiar Mohaddes and Thomas Roulet and follow The Lab on Twitter.

The 2021/22 Programme

How do you evaluate an entrepreneurial opportunity? What does it take to flesh out your idea and refine it, and to assess the competitive landscape? How do you acquire the right technological, human and financial resources to make your concept a reality?

Open to all continuing King’s students, the Entrepreneurship Lab is designed to provide you with answers to these questions, and to enable you to develop the crucial skills of creativity, pragmatism, communication, and co-ordination. In 2021/22, the Lab will consist of a week-long residential training programme prior to the start of Michaelmas Term, followed by a series of events, workshops and talks throughout the year, and culminating in the opportunity to receive seed-funding to take your idea forward.
