Programme Team

Techcelerate is an Imperial Enterprise initiative – that means that in addition to the core programme team responsible for programme management, the facilitation of skills development and business support, other divisions at Enterprise provide support in related areas. The core programme team is made up of a team dedicated to supporting the participants, often on the first steps on their entrepreneurial journey.
