Interested in how new inventions are commercialised? Looking for some hands-on business skills and experience? Then read on!

“I was one of the first students who joined i-Teams. The experience really shaped my career, as I changed professional course and from an engineering student doing his PhD, became a business consultant and then project manager, and I have now founded my own company”
George Lentaris (i-Teams 2007) Founder of EnerVibe

By joining an i-Team, you will work for a term with students from across the University and a dedicated industry mentor. You will investigate the commercial potential of a real Cambridge invention, gaining hands-on skills and experience.
