Do you have an idea worth a £20k investment?

Our Postdoc Business Plan Competition has become a key annual event in the University’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and has spawned a number of successful spin-out companies. In 2020 the competition was renamed to honour the life and career of the late Chris Abell, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Professor of Biological Chemistry. 

Run by Cambridge Enterprise and the Entrepreneurial Postdocs of Cambridge, this is the event for University postdocs who are aspiring entrepreneurs. Whether it’s a ground-breaking invention or a social enterprise, whatever your academic expertise, we want to hear from you. To enter, you must submit a business plan outlining your idea. It does not have to be related to your research at the University.
