Mentoring, workshops and resources

Taking an idea to a business is challenging. Each team accepted into the Summer Lab will have one dedicated mentor and access to a pool of other mentors and advisers as needed. Throughout the Summer Lab there will be workshops and events to inspire you, giving you frameworks and tools that you can apply immediately. We will work with you to ensure you make the most of this exciting experience.

Ventures need funding to get started. To help you to test and develop your ideas, we have a fund that you can apply for to use in your venture.
