What is Wolfson Enterprise?

This competition is an opportunity to design, pitch, and execute your startup idea in a supportive environment. Whether you are a postgraduate researcher thinking about commercializing and technology transfer, a first-year undergraduate interested in trying your hand at conceiving a business plan, or an alumnus currently involved in a more developed startup venture, we want to hear from you and help you take your project to the next level.

Finalists will gain the opportunity to present their pitches to the Wolfson Entrepreneurs Society (WES) network of expert speakers and judges, a group of eight highly experienced entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and executives from all over the world, representing a broad range of industries, professional backgrounds, and specialties.

Enterprise 2022 Final

The finals of this competition will take place on Thursday 28 April 2022. Free registration for this event is required via Eventbrite.

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.
