Since 2007, we have been passionately promoting entrepreneurship and helping students create globally impactful startups. We want to help our members dream boldly about the future and employ radical creativity to solve the big problems facing our generation.
Our activities fall into three simple categories that form a pipeline - to help you build your startup.
Throughout the year, UCLe provides students frictionless access to a network of like-minded individuals and encourages them to adopt an entrepreneurial mindset. To inspire students to follow the path to entrepreneurship, we have:
-UCL Business Game, one of the most prominent case study competitions in Europe
-Speaker Events with experts in the field of entrepreneurship such as the current COO of Google.
To help students develop their ideas related to entrepreneurship into viable business models, we have:
-Bloomsbury Start-Up Academy, our in-house pre-accelerator program, develops students’ ideas into workable business models and plans.
-Bloomsbury Ventures, our own VC-focused program designed to get you up and running in the VC world by having training sessions with Venture Capitalists
-Women-In-Tech, a division focused on promoting Technology for Women hosting Hack-It, a diversity-driven hackathon and Shadowing-Women-In-Tech, a program for aspiring techies to shadow leading Women in Technology
To help students grow their businesses and support them, UCLE hosts several events throughout the year:
-UCLe Venture Capital Fund, our in-house seed capital fund helps turn students’ business models and plans into working Minimum Viable Products and provides the next step to becoming self-supported disruptors.
-London Startup Fair, the leading entrepreneurial fair in London hosted in collaboration with LSE and Imperial Entrepreneurs.
