Oxbridge AI Pitch Competition

Oxbridge AI Pitch Competition

The Oxbridge AI Challenge is an annual pitch competition born from Oxbridge AI, an ambitious alliance between OxAI and CUE (Cambridge University Entrepreneurs). Our mission is to identify, fund, and champion the AI-driven ideas from Oxford and Cambridge that promise to shape the future.

We stand at the crossroads of innovation, drawing from OxAI's deep AI roots and CUE's unparalleled entrepreneurial legacy. The competition seeks to forge connections between the unparalleled talent within Oxbridge community and the highest-profile investors and mentorship opportunities within the industry, in order to leverage AI to address the most pressing problems of today.
