University students invited to develop new start up ideas at LJMU’s Idealab

Computer Planning

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

If you wish to apply for this scheme please complete the pdf form and send it to by 22 May 2017.  Any enquiries should be directed to Emma Robinson on 0151 231 2601.
