About Cambridge University Entrepreneurs

Cambridge University Entrepreneurs (CUE) was founded in 1999. Two decades later, it has evolved to a key part of the University's entrepreneurial ecosystem, promoting and nurturing entrepreneurship and innovation among students in Cambridge. It is a student-run society, and its main focus is to host the CUE Business Creation Competitions, awarding over £500k to more than 45 start-ups ranging from technology, software and web, to social enterprise, with the financial support from ARM, Horizon Discoveries, EPSRC, Redgate, Mills and Reeve, Cambridge Angels and Taylor Vinters. Collectively, these companies have contributed greatly to the local region, securing over £100 million in investment, and producing over 110 full-time jobs. As a part of the competition, CUE also provides free business training, mentoring, networking events, which are always spoken highly of by our competition entrants, friends, and the local entrepreneurial community.
