Converge Challenge is a company creation programme for staff, students, and graduates of all Scottish Universities and Research Institutes.
Converge Challenge provides high quality training, hands-on mentoring and practical support, including cash prizes. Through this, it helps to refine and accelerate the pipeline of spin-outs and start-ups by developing fledgling businesses into investor ready companies. The long-term goal of Converge Challenge is to create sustainable profitable companies and help Scotland grow as a Can Do competitive economy. This can be done through giving students and staff commercial skills to bring new products and services to market.
