The impulse programme, run out of the Maxwell Centre, is an established action-learning programme of global significance, serving as a catalyst for entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship. The programme has a sharp focus on the development of high potential technology innovation into commercial propositions, for individuals and companies.
impulse takes place once a year, from the end of April to the middle of July, and comprises three modules. It is delivered through workshops, industry mentoring, one-to-one advice, investor pitch sessions, market research, and informal networking. During the first week and the last week of the programme, participants are encouraged to attend in-person, although these are also run as hybrid sessions.
The programme provides participants with time to develop their ideas, with the help and advice of entrepreneurial mentors, investors, business experts, partners and sponsors from the Cambridge ecosystem.
The impulse programme is open to anyone. The fee for University of Cambridge members is currently £1,250, but there are a number of sponsored places available for both Cambridge and external participants. 2023 application deadlines have now passed.
