LCF & UCL Co-LAB Hack 2017

About the event

‘There is a beautiful tension between the notions of technology, consumption and sustainability’ (Holition, 2017).

Working in collaborative teams, join forces with London College of Fashion students to develop a business idea with the chance of winning prizes between £1,000 and £4,000. This LCF & UCL Co-LAB Hack will develop your experience and skills in entrepreneurship, business development and idea-generation.

The Co-Lab Hack-a-thon is open to all UCL undergraduate students, postgraduate students, staff and BaseKX members who want to learn how to bring business ideas to life while working in cross-disciplinary teams. As you will be working on a fresh business idea for London, you do not have to have your own business idea to attend.
