Got a big idea? Wadham students are invited to pitch entrepreneurial ideas in a university-wide competition with a top prize of £10,000.

  • All-Innovate 2020

Wadham is supporting All-Innovate 2020, Oxford's inter-college ideas competition led by Oxford Colleges in partnership with The Oxford Foundry, where the best entrepreneurial idea wins a top prize of £10,000 plus two runner up prizes of £5,000.

A Wadham-led team won the All-Innovate Best Undergraduate prize of £5k in 2019 with ‘Light My Way’, a map app that helps users find the safest way home after a night out, enabling the user to both share their location with family and friends, and give an indication of when they can be expected home.

The 2020 competition opens on 20 January 2020, but ahead of this date, Oxford Foundry is running a series of workshops to help you come up with and develop your ideas. Design Thinking workshops have been organised to help you think more creatively and Idea Exploration workshops take students through the stages of developing an idea and turning it into a potential venture.  

The competition is for ALL students at Oxford, regardless of discipline, who have an official association with a participating Oxford College.
