Location: London, UK
Company: UCL
Job Summary: To provide information, advice, guidance and support to budding entrepreneurs and startups.
Job Description: Based in the entrepreneurship team, the Business Acceleration Advisor will provide information, advice, guidance and support to our budding entrepreneurs and startups. Collaborating with the wider team and colleagues across UCL, the Business Acceleration Advisor will also work with our professional practitioners, advisors and mentors within our more intensive business environment currently known as UCL Hatcheries. This intervention enables greater access to a wider range of targeted support that includes opportunity to work in UCL’s dedicated co-working space at BASE KX.
Requirements: We are looking for colleagues to join our team who have active knowledge and experience of business development and incubation.

Entrepreneurship is part of our DNA at UCL. If you are interested in nurturing talent, supporting creativity through innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship and have the tenacity to make things happen then we look forward to hearing from you.
