StEP Ignite - Entrepreneurship Programme

StEP Ignite is a Student Entrepreneurship Programme that brings teams of entrepreneurial students together to develop innovative business ideas. At the end of the programme, all teams will pitch their business ideas to a panel of judges who will select a winner.  

The winning team will receive a cash prize to spend on taking the first steps in setting up the business they pitched. In addition you’ll receive a package of support from OUI and will be partnered with business & technology mentors to help make the dream a reality. They’ll help you get investor ready and support your bids to raise funds through OUI's extensive network of investors who already invest millions into the ideas which come from Oxford; they’ve got a panel of investors ready and waiting to meet you!
