The Parmee Prize offers training, mentoring and a £2000 prize for aspiring entrepreneurs

The Parmee Prize

The Parmee Prize is an annual entrepreneurship competition for Pembroke College undergraduate and postgraduate students organised by the Corporate Partnership Programme. William Pitt Fellow Dr Richard Parmee (1970), from Corporate Partner company Cheyney, devised the competition to support aspiring entrepreneurs.

The Parmee Prize welcomes applications from all stages of the entrepreneurship journey. Training and mentoring from Richard helps applicants develop their business idea and shortlisted candidates are given pitching training before pitching their business to a panel of judges. The winning applicant gets £2000 to develop their business and receives mentoring support from Richard.

The team wants to hear your bright ideas, whatever they are. Past winners come from a diverse range of fields, and include:

  • a wearable braille reader
  • a solar powered hybrid biomass stove
  • an AI tool that autogenerates discharge summaries.

The next Parmee Prize is set to take place on 14th March 2024. We welcome applications from teams led by a Pembroke student.
