Liverpool John Moores University’s student accelerator `Idealab’ is opening its doors for the first time to University of Liverpool graduates and is seeking talented teams of 2 and 4 students to develop and prototype their technology-driven ideas this summer.
`Idealab’ is an 8 week accelerator programme delivered by the multi-award winning team at the Centre for Entrepreneurship at LJMU. It is designed for teams of between 2 and 4 people to develop technology driven ideas that could have a potentially global marketplace.
`Idealab’ is delivered by the private sector and Professional Liverpool, who support the teams with executive level mentors and access to some of the most experienced business minds in the region. The `Mentor in chief’ is local venture capitalist and LJMU enterprise fellow, Steve Stuart.
`IdeaLab’ uses evidence based entrepreneurship principles to validate business ideas through structured conversations with potential customers and stakeholders. At the end of the programme participants will pitch at a celebratory event in front of an invited audience.
There is no obligation to start a new company, but if you do want to take the idea further, the university team will work with you to make your idea a reality. IdeaLab team expression of interest form 2017
