Impulse for tech Innovators, Maxwell Centre

Chance encounter makes amazing ideas possible

Impulse at the Maxwell Centre provides a structured learning experience with tailored mentoring for researchers and aspiring entrepreneurs in turning raw ideas into winning businesses. It serves as a catalyst for entrepreneurship for individuals and organizations.

The Impulse programme is about strong action learning and is results driven, the participants bring their innovative ideas to the table. It acts as a learning vehicle involving prioritising and developing ideas, with a sharp focus on ‘high-potential’ business cases. 

The programme takes place over three months and comprises two three-day intensive residential modules as well as individual assignments. Both online mentoring and regular clinics between the modules are part of the programme and include discussions with senior business professionals. In this way, participants have more time to develop their ideas with the continued help and advice they need. The programme is run in parallel with their normal work activities – there is considerable flexibility about how the aims of the programme can be achieved.

Module A - Preparing a business case:         26-30 June 2017

Module B-  Validating your business case:  25-27 September 2017

More details about the application process, contributors and all other aspects of the programme can be found at the Impulse website or on this leaflet.
