Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to research your exciting company. I
have learnt so much from the process and I really find what Nanomation is doing
fascinating. Thank you also Amy and Bang for the opportunity to participate in i-teams,
and Alex for the excellent mentorship and support with our research, it has absolutely
been the highlight of my time in Cambridge!
Dr. Adelyne Chan
Cancer Research UK, Clinical Trials Management i-Team, Lent 2021
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a big thank you for organising the i-Teams – your enthusiasm for the course really shows and I had come to look forward to your weekly emails!
Lots of the things we did as part of iTeams were way out of my comfort zone, but I really enjoyed the experience and I learnt a lot during this time.
Sociology, Solar-powered Water Pump i-Team, Easter 2020
I really loved all of the i-Teams programme! It was really great to get to explore so many new topics with a team coming from different educational backgrounds. Overall, it was great to feel really supported in the experience by having a dedicated mentor and so much input from experts in the field of commercialising inventions (Simon, Amy, Lara, Berk). Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it!! My team was really proactive and we worked well together, playing to everyone’s strengths.
Flexible Printed Solar Cell i-Team, Easter 2020
i-Teams is the highlight of my week! I got to establish connections with people through i-Teams I would not come across otherwise — what is the chance for me to meet someone who has decades of experience in their industry and is willing to share their experience for free?
I really enjoyed working with our team and the whole course!

Polymeric Heart Valves i-Team, Michaelmas 2020
Thank you so much for hosting the Development I-Teams especially in the midst of a pandemic!
It was an honour to be accepted for the heart valves project. I have learned and benefited a lot from it and gained many invaluable connections. I appreciate this a lot and hope that more people can benefit from this program in the future. I look forward to joining future projects as well!
Pep2Smart i-Team, Michaelmas 2019
Participating in i-Teams has been one of the best things I did while being in Cambridge.
It inspired me to talk to the technology transfer office about whether we can patent my own research. As a result, next year we will be looking at whether we can work with an external company, which is very exciting. I wouldn’t have thought of trying something like this prior to participating in i-Teams.
Psychology and Neuroscience in Education, i-Teams Easter 2011
i-Teams was a highlight of my time at Cambridge! My teammates were amazing, and I learned so much about business and entrepreneurship. I felt like I was part of an exciting new project and contributing to the development of an important technology!
Jing Zhang, Chemistry
i-Teams student, Lent 2010, CUE President 2011/12 & Founder of AQDOT
This project was extremely attractive to me because of its potential to be applied in various areas and the possibility to completely revolutionize the current methods of initial drug screening. Working on this project has taught me an enormous amount about general business strategy, market analysis, team building, effective communication and presentation. This has been an invaluable experience for me.
Intelligent Online Textbooks i-Team, Michaelmas 2007
I was one of the first students who joined the i-Teams back in 2007. I have to admit that the experience really shaped my career, as I changed professional course and from an engineering student doing his PhD, became a business consultant, and then project manager.
Chemical Engineering, i-Teams student & CUTEC President 2006/07
Our team was like a small company, working together to achieve a common goal
Computational Biology, i-Teams student
i-Teams is one of the most entertaining and inspiring projects I have ever worked on. It has helped to reshape and direct my future career towards entrepreneurship.
Partner and Head of Technology, Taylor Vinters Solicitors
Taylor Vinters enjoy supporting i-Teams and are continually impressed by the enthusiasm, creativity and analytical skills demonstrated by the teams. The decisions which entrepreneurs make at the very earliest stage in the life of a business are absolutely crucial. i-Teams’ budding entrepreneurs learn those decision-making skills through the real-life projects they are offered by i-Teams and the mentoring they receive through the programme and gain experience of working in top-class teams with complementary skills. Cambridge is an exciting and dynamic place to do business and i-Teams is helping to develop the future of this innovation community.
Dr. Philip Martin
Partner, Marks & Clerk LLP
“-Teams is an excellent and innovative programme which allows students to gain real-world business experience. They have to face questions and issues which are crucial to an entrepreneur in any size of business and they can be seen to come a long way in a short time. The structured approach taken to identifying market opportunities identifies new possibilities which are unlikely otherwise to be spotted, and for some projects this has played a pivotal role in commercialisation of the technology.
Professor John Archer,
Genetics, University of Cambridge
I usually stick with my decisions once I make them, but the student i-Team made me reconsider my own conclusions and adopt a different approach
Professor David Russell
This was too good an opportunity to miss. We recognised the value of i-Teams immediately and were pleased to have been chosen as the first project from outside Cambridge. We have been impressed with the high calibre team assembled and plan to stay in touch with them.
Professor Nigel Slater FREng
I am ecstatic! They did a fantastic job.
Neutreeno (and former i-Teams participant)
I was impressed with what the group has done so far and the number of interviews that they have conducted, especially over such a short period of time.
