The Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) focuses on practical learning that enables individuals to develop their own ideas and build self-confidence. We understand the power of communications and networks so provide access to entrepreneurial networks, business angels, academics, venture capitalist companies, regional development agencies, enterprise centres, alumni communities and other relevant institutions.
One of CfEL's key teaching values is that the best people to teach entrepreneurs are entrepreneurs. Experienced entrepreneurs and practitioners are invited to share their knowledge, insight and experience with nascent entrepreneurs and students at our programmes, workshops and lectures.
CfEL works with many practitioners who greatly enrich our programmes. To date well over 300 people have shared their experiences, expertise, energy and enthusiasm for entrepreneurship with our students by:
- Giving lectures and presentations
- Providing feedback on student business plan presentations
We have appointed a number of key people as Visiting Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs in Residence in recognition of the way they are contributing so significantly to the development of entrepreneurship at the University of Cambridge.
