BE PART OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADING TECH STARTUPS

Conception offers you a unique opportunity to join our students on their entrepreneurial journey.  Our approach is flexible, low-risk, and optimised to each cohort.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED: JOIN THE CONCEPTION NEXUS

 

We are welcoming experienced entrepreneurs, advisors, mentors, and investors who are passionate about being involved in the next generation of leading tech startups, and who are committed to join our PhD students on their entrepreneurial journey.

Conception Nexus is our network of talented individuals who complement our students' academic excellence.

We are inviting a diverse range of individuals and organisations to join us, who can bring expertise and further connections to our nascent student companies to accelerate their growth.

For example, our students find it very valuable to have early commercial introductions to organisations that you may be networked with, and who can potentially become reference clients or valuable advisors. 

To be part of the Conception Nexus, please fill the following form. We will be in touch once Cohort 2 is selected.

Once the student cohort is selected, we will work out your optimal involvement and connect you to the student teams.

THE CO-FOUNDER ROUTE

Once our cohort is selected, some student teams will be in need of co-founders who can help accelerate their entrepreneurial journey.

We will match select individuals from our entrepreneurial network who will work with the students to build MVPs and form startups as co-founders.

The allocation of equity is jointly determined by the entrepreneur and the student, with aid and impartial support from the Conception team.  

Meet some of our entrepreneurs, who have become co-founders and advisors in the Cohort1 companies.
