Cambridge Enterprise, Cambridge Innovation Capital, and the University of Cambridge launch ambitious ‘Innovate Cambridge’ initiative
Cambridge Enterprise, Cambridge Innovation Capital and the University of Cambridge today launched ‘Innovate Cambridge’, an ambitious Greater Cambridge initiative that aims to collectively agree on and define an inclusive vision for the future of Cambridge and its innovation ecosystem to be implemented over the next decade.
On 14 September, Innovate Cambridge’s founders were joined by over 180 industry leaders, politicians, start-up founders, and members of the Cambridge technology community at the inaugural ‘Innovate Cambridge’ summit to launch the initiative and begin an ecosystem-wide conversation about the future of the Greater Cambridge region.
Following the event, attendees were asked to sign the Innovate Cambridge Charter, in which they pledged to come together to support, promote and enhance the Cambridge ecosystem, and to develop a set of ecosystem-wide initiatives to enable the delivery of the ‘Innovate Cambridge’ vision. Many individuals and businesses have already signed the charter, with more expected to sign soon.
Over the next decade we face many critical challenges – climate, health and the digital transformation of our world. The Innovate Cambridge initiative looks ahead to 2030 and beyond. For Cambridge research to maximise its impact the University and the ecosystem will need to work with enhanced partnership.
Innovate Cambridge aims to start a conversation about an ambitious and inclusive innovation vision for Cambridge. The initiative will include leaders from industry, the investment community, accelerators, the University and other research institutions, local government, science and technology parks, networks and programmes, start-ups and entrepreneurs.
