Message from the team

Ever thought about running your own business? UCL Entrepreneurs is a society of students passionate about making that happen. We organise activities that fall into three simple categories that form a pipeline – to help you start your startup.

Entrepreneurship – A pipe dream?

  1. INSPIRE: Provide students frictionless access to a network of like-minded individuals. e.g. Speaker Events | UK Entrepreneur Society Meet-Ups | Bloomsbury Startup Academy | London Startup Fair | Hatch London Hackathon | UCL Business Game
  2. CATALYSE: Develop students’ ideas into workable business models and plans. e.g. Bloomsbury Startup Academy (Pre-Accelerator Programme)
  3. GROW: Turn students’ business models and plans into working Minimum Viable Products and provide the next step to becoming self-supported disruptors. e.g. UCLE Venture Capital Fund (Seed Capital) | Accelerator Partnerships

Flagship Events & Programmes

Hatch London Hackathon: Our diversity-driven Hackathon held at the UK Ministry of Justice provides the female student population a chance to enter the tech industry. Organised by our Women-In-Tech division in conjunction with, participants are grouped and tasked with solving real-world problems.
UCL Business Game: A two-day long case study-based competition organised in partnership with the European Business Game Alliance and the UCL School of Management. The competition exposes students to scenarios and challenges faced by large corporations and promotes the concept of ‘Intrepreneurship’.
UCLE Venture Capital Fund: Our home-grown Venture Capital fund features bi-annual ‘Demo Days’ which allow top UCL startups to pitch in front of judges from London’s most prestigious VC firms to compete for debt/equity free pre-seed capital.
Bloomsbury Startup Academy: A 9-week pre-accelerator program aimed to nurture UCL students’ startup ideas into viable businesses via mentor support, workshops & structured performance checks.
London Startup Fair: UCL’s largest ever society organised event. Lead by UCLE and organised in conjunction with several societies across London, uniting over 30 startups in UCL’s Main Cloisters to give students the chance to learn about life at emerging startups and seek potential internship opportunities.

Our objective is to assist student entrepreneurs and promote entrepreneurship as a viable career path… while having fun doing it.
