The Wolfson Entrepreneur Society (WES) is a Wolfson College Students’ Association (WCSA) affiliated Society open to students, alumni and non-Wolfson members. We bring like minds together to develop strategies, source resources and work together to build start-ups or prepare/help you with your entrepreneurial journey through lecture series, workshops, panels, debates and hands-on practical projects submitted by our membership as well as provide a platform for investors and potential founders to build businesses.

Aims and Objectives of WES

As a result-oriented society WES is set up with the succinct aims and objectives as outlined below;

  • To create a platform for students with entrepreneurial interest/idea to come together and develop their ideas while supporting each other

  • To build an ecosystem that maximises networking of entrepreneurs at Wolfson College with those within the Cambridge cluster and beyond.

  • To run such activities including lecture series, talks, exhibitions, idea hubs etc that help individuals and teams build on their ideas from scratch to finish.

  • Link up with early-career students of Wolfson who have entrepreneurial ideas and want to find students with skill sets to come on board.

  • To provide resources for students to continue to pursue their ideas beyond the society.

Phenotypic plasticity enables animals to flexibly adjust their behaviour to their social environment – sometimes through the expression of adaptive traits that have not been exhibited for several generations. The ability to revive these ‘ghosts of adaptations past’ could prove beneficial for populations living in a changing world.
