UCL is one of four UK partner schools helping to promote this competition which is open to all UCL students: undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral, as well as alumni that have graduated in the last 12 months.

For those interested in attending: if you'd like to make a good impression on Michael Baum, be prepared to stand up and give a one minute 'elevator pitch' about your big idea! No pressure, if you'd rather just come along to find out more, but a good introductory pitch could get you off to a flying start and one step closer to realising your dream of starting a successful business.
