Explore

Do you have lots of ideas, but you’re not sure which one to pursue?  Or perhaps you want to make more impact or be your own boss, but you need to create an idea and develop your entrepreneurial skills.

The Oxbridge Launchpad Explore programme is designed to help you de-risk becoming an entrepreneur.  If you’re in the early stages of thinking about a career change, and you want to explore, develop possibilities, validate ideas and learn the skills you’ll need to make a new venture a success, you’re in the right place.

OL Explore Programme

An 8-week face-to-face evening course, giving you the opportunity to try out a range of tools and models with a carefully selected cohort of 11-15 other potential entrepreneurs.

At the end of the course, you’ll have created, explored and begun to validate one or more of your business or social enterprise ideas, and have a good idea of whether you want to take it forwards.  You’ll also have started to develop the skills you’ll need to make it a success, including convincing others about your idea.

Sign up to receive an alert when registrations open for the next cohort.

OL Ideation Workshop

If you’re not yet ready to sign up for the full programme, but you’d like to experience our methods and explore how to create and select ideas, this 4-hour workshop could be for you.  It covers tools and techniques for identifying your personal goals, creating ideas for new businesses and selecting/ranking those ideas ready to develop them further.   The workshop can be taken as a half-day or two evenings and runs throughout the year on demand.

As the material covered is similar to that in the first two sessions of the OL Explore programme, there is also an option to continue onto that programme for a reduced fee, with optional attendance at the first two sessions.

Register your interest in a workshop (these are held periodically once enough people have expressed an interest).
