Winners of the Oxford IMAGINEIF! final will be offered a residency at the Barclays Eagle Lab and Wood Centre for Innovation in Headington. The prize includes access to bespoke mentoring and funding opportunities, combined with the space and support needed to scale your venture in an environment dedicated to accelerating early stage science and technology companies.



IMAGINE IF! is a global accelerator with a dedicated program of mentorship and the opportunity to pitch to an investor panel to win non-dilutive capital and six-month’s lab space. The competition is tailored to early state ideas with a particular focus on technology and science that transforms healthcare and the environment. The competition is run by Innovation Forum as Local Finals tied to Innovation Forum branches (like Oxford) and a Global Final of winners from across the globe.

IMAGINE IF! is unique in providing a tailored mentoring program to all local finalists to develop entrepreneurial ideas and pitches with the seasoned expertise of those who have seen this journey many times. Oxford finalists will also be particularly well-supported with access to our successful ACE-Saturday workshops.
