The Social Venture Weekend is two and a half days of world class training provided by Cambridge Judge Business School.

No matter what stage you’re at with your business, the weekend will help you refine your thinking, develop your business plan and pitch it. You’ll also have the opportunity to share and test your ideas with others and learn from the experiences of successful social entrepreneurs.

You can watch a video about two of the previous weekends: here and here.


The Weekend runs from 4.30pm on the Friday through to 5.30pm on the Sunday and includes sessions on:

All session will be delivered by experienced and well regarded staff from the Cambridge Judge Business School.
