For Cambridge Students
“i-Teams is the highlight of my week!”
Open to all students and staff from any university department.
PhD & Masters students, post-docs, MBAs & staff (& undergraduates for Development i-Teams).
Gain hands-on business skills in consulting, market research and entrepreneurship, through working on a real university invention, supported by a focused program of lectures and workshops.
i-Teams runs every term. We have three versions – Innovation i-Teams, Medical i-Teams & Development i-Teams.
For Cambridge researchers & inventors
i-Teams can work on any type of invention or technology, whether you are aiming at licensing or setting up a start-up. We work pre-spin-out and on early stage start-ups, focusing on gathering information directly from industry experts through detailed interviews.
Past projects have covered life sciences, medicine, physical sciences, chemistry, engineering, computing, anthropology, education and even the University Library.
