Commercial outreach

The 2nd CDT Den is here!

This Dragon’s Den style competition offers seed funding of £20k to the winning team that will allow them to begin the commercial development of a scientific idea/invention unrelated to their PhD projects.


The competition includes bespoke training and mentorship by the Imperial College Business School and external entrepreneurship experts.

Workshop dates and content:

The Live Final of the CDT Den will take place in Summer 2014, when the top four teams will pitch their cases to the 'Dragons' and compete to win the £20,000 top funding!
