About the UCE Summer Startup Programme

The Summer Startup Programme is a ten-week intensive incubator/accelerator designed to enable student founders to take their ventures to the next level. The programme caters for student founders from any degree programme/ disciplines and their ventures range across the spectrum; social enterprises to purely commercial initiatives; concept stage to revenue-generating; local impact projects to global disruptors. This is UCE's seventh Summer Startup Programme. Alumni from the programme have gone on to raise capital, access top tier accelerators and build sustainable, profitable ventures.

We have a fantastic cohort of summer students - you can find out a little more about them and their ventures here.
