We are delighted to connect students to this fantastic opportunity! The EIB prize gave two female entrepreneurs vital funding to unlock the next stage of development for their idea. We also see a huge opportunity for Sophie and Lauren to join the EIB network, making connections to help further their current and future projects.
The award publicly recognises their leadership and entrepreneurial skills. It helps us to celebrate the talent and achievements of pioneering female engineers at Imperial. Both prize recipients showed creativity, expertise and determination when creating and advancing their idea. We are pleased to have the opportunity to reward their achievements and can use their stories to help inspire the next wave of female engineers to start businesses. Many thanks for the EIB team for supporting WE Innovate and the engineers taking part!
