About the bootcamp

Academics and researchers at the University of Edinburgh do you want to understand more about how to commercialise your research? We will show you practical tools and techniques you can use to validate and test your ideas for commercialisation in this exciting, intensive workshop spread over two days. 

We will cover:

  • Articulate the problem that your idea or technology can solve
  • Explore potential customers for your idea
  • Document and share your idea using the Lean Canvas
  • Identify potential business models and iterate it based on customer feedback
  • Pitch – learn how to engage people in conversation about why your idea matters
  • Start your entrepreneurial journey - what are the next step you need to take?


This bootcamp takes place over 2 days and you must attend both days. 
  • Tuesday 16th May, 9am - 2pm (includes lunch)
  • Monday 22nd May, 9am - 2pm (includes lunch)
Venue: Room 1206C ib, James Clarke Maxwell Building (JCMB), Kings Buildings 

You may already have an idea you are working on or just have some general ideas. You are asked to come with a business idea to work on as part of the course. There is no obligation to take this forward however if you are interested in the next steps, our team will finish off day two with a guide to the commercialisation process at the University of Edinburgh. 

Who can attend?

The bootcamp is open to all academic staff, other academic researchers, postdocs and support staff from the University of Edinburgh. Please ensure you can come to both dates before signing up.
