All-Innovate is Oxford’s inter-college competition run by the Oxford Foundry in partnership with Oxford colleges. Students (undergraduate, postgraduate and DPhil) pitch entrepreneurial ideas for a chance to win a top prize of £10,000 prize money, and two runner-up prizes of £5,000 each.
For 2021, All-Innovate will be moving online and running across Hilary AND Trinity term. We will be announcing two rounds of winners during the academic year, with £20,000 being awarded in both Hilary and Trinity term. The top prize will be awarded to the best overall idea with runner up prizes being awarded to best undergraduate and best postgraduate ideas. In 2021 All-Innovate is delivered in collaboration with EY.
This year, ALL applicants will be offered a place on a one-day intensive virtual bootcamp to help them all to develop their ideas. Our judges will shortlist the top two applications from each college. These teams will be invited to a virtual selection round in which they will pitch their ideas and receive further mentoring, from this point, the final 10 will go on to pitch at the All-Innovate final.
The competition aims to encourage ALL students at Oxford, regardless of discipline, to develop an entrepreneurial skill set and generate entrepreneurial ideas. Inclusivity and diversity are at the forefront of the All-Innovate ethos.
