CIDAUK Incubator collaborates with University of Surrey on webinar for CIDAUK Business Innovation Competition

Updated: Apr 2

On 27 March 24, CIDAUK Incubator and the University of Surrey jointly organised their first online session to introduce the Business Innovation Competition to university students interested in entering the competition. 

The collaboration from the university was represented through Surrey Academy for Blockchain and Metaverse Applications (SABMA).

The CIDAUK Business Innovation Competition is an ambitious initiative designed to harness and showcase the innovative talents of UK university students, particularly those in technology-related fields. 

Students at and above the PhD level are invited to present their cutting-edge tech ideas and business plans, in return for the opportunity to access a generous seed funding of up to £300k and a wide range of business support.

The webinar marks the first in a series of collaboration between CIDAUK and the University of Surrey on the competition.

The collaboration reflects the mutual recognition of the important role played by both parties in fostering the growth and development of young innovative entrepreneurs in the UK, particularly in the fields of AI, blockchain, healthcare and the metaverse.

Upcoming Offline Event

Following on the success of the webinar, CIDAUK and SABMA will once again join forces in hosting an offline free event at the university after the Easter break (14:00 - 16:00; Wed, 17 Apr 2024).

The seminar will allow students to find out more about the competition, as well as the opportunity to pitch their ideas in person and receive initial feedback directly from our experts.
