UCL Innovation and Enterprise

Our aim is to inspire a spirit of enterprise across UCL: to ensure that the economic and societal benefits of our research are fully realised. To achieve this, UCL Innovation and Enterprise brings together academics, the business community and other potential beneficiaries of our research in order to maximize its potential for commercialisation and ‘real world’ use. The goal is to secure our institution’s long-term place as a global leader in enterprise and innovation.

UCL names first winners of Farha New Venture Awards

UCL has announced the first three winners of the new Farha New Venture Awards which support promising student start-up businesses and social enterprises.

The awards, which have been funded by a generous donation from UCL alumnus and philanthropist George Farha, are made to UCL students who have developed the most promising start-ups after completing this year’s Advances Idea Accelerator  – an 8-week entrepreneurial summer school for those looking to develop their ideas into viable ventures
