All-Innovate Ideas Competition

All Innovate logo

All-Innovate is Oxford's inter-college idea competition.

This competition was run by the Entrepreneurship Centre in collaboration with all Oxford colleges. Eligible students (undergraduate, postgraduate and DPhil) pitched their entrepreneurial ideas for a chance to win a share of £30,000.

All-Innovate returned in person and ran during Michaelmas term 2022. Prizes were awarded to the strongest ideas that addressed real challenges and achieved impact. As usual, the competition was free to enter!

The competition aims to encourage all students at Oxford, regardless of discipline or level of study, to develop an entrepreneurial skill set and generate entrepreneurial ideas.

The competition has now closed.

It’s amazing to know that the judges saw Fiquetex's potential, especially when there were so many high-quality ideas! I'd never pitched before, so it was a great experience & the workshop really helped me. I got to meet people from my college too.

This year, applicants were offered a place on workshops designed to support them in developing their ideas. The teams were invited to a selection round in which they pitched their ideas and from this point, the remaining teams went on to pitch at the All-Innovate final. The Entrepreneurship Centre will also be offering further support and guidance to the winners, post-programme.

The feedback from the judges in the semi-final helped shape our pitch for the final, and the communication skills learnt in this competition should be taken forward and applied to the non-work aspects of your life. There’s a lot of value in that.
