Presentation Day at the Lucent Challenge

Cambridge Precision Ltd sponsors the Lucy Cavendish ‘Lucent Challenge’.

The challenge takes the format of an intensive ‘mentoring’ weekend, helping teams of students develop project concepts into convincing pitches. Following the 2023 opening event on Friday night, eleven teams of students worked with commercial and academic mentors over the weekend.

Today the hard work is being showcased, and the pitches made in a dragon’s den style event!

“An enterprising mindset is a way of thinking that enables our students to spot and seize new opportunities to create positive impact and see them through to implementation – whatever their future career.”

The Lucy Enterprise programme runs throughout the academic year and is supported by our Fellows, alumni and other friends of the College.

Students are invited to join a series of events including a launch in Michaelmas term, a competition in Lent term and a celebration in Easter term.

Termly surgeries, coaching and mentoring is also available to support their development, together with other informal opportunities to network with like-minded Lucy students.
