Trinity College and Central Working, which operates the Bradfield Centre at Cambridge Science Park, devised the biannual competition to enable entrepreneurial students to develop their innovations in a conducive setting. The prize winners will be based at the Bradfield Centre, recieve £10,000, have access to networking opportunities and entrepreneurial events at the Bradfield Centre and recieve mentoring from scientists-entrepreneurs, leading academics and Trinity alumni.
The inaugural winners will be announced on the night,
The Master of Trinity, Sir Gregory Winter, is best known for developing new classes of antibody-based drugs to treat cancer and auto-immune diseases, which have revolutionised the pharmaceutical industry said:
‘My own journey from academic research to development of new pharmaceutical drugs was greatly accelerated by exposure to an entrepreneurial culture. I therefore welcome the opportunity offered by the prize for an entrepreneurial-minded student at Cambridge to develop their ideas in the fertile context of the Bradfield Centre, rubbing shoulders with other tech entrepreneurs and mentors from Trinity alumni network.’
