The Young Business Leader Summer Weekend is an opportunity for students aged 15-18 to gain a truly immersive experience of life as a visionary business leader at the world-famous University College London.
Over the course of two action-packed days, you will be challenged by investment professionals to: find business partners, design a business plan, negotiate deals and market your product with conviction. The weekend culminates with you being given the chance to pitch to real-life angel investors and venture capitalists.
As a business leader, you will have access to a number of experts and resources to help you succeed – a strong mix of successful founders, emerging entrepreneurs, and leading corporate executives specialising in: business strategy, technology, sales, marketing and finance.
Our alumni also have unlimited lifetime access to our depth of expertise; students can contact us with further questions at any time, and we make sure you are promptly given the advice you need. Your attendance on the weekend is therefore just the beginning of our long-term commitment to coaching you towards achieving your career ambitions.

The rooms are single, but bathrooms are shared.
UCL accommodation has 24-hour security on-site. In addition, InvestIN staff (our chaperones) will be staying at the halls of residence, and there will be a 24-hour contact number (available from the time students check-in until the end of the programme) should you need any assistance.
Our chaperones are security-vetted (enhanced DBS check), adult members of staff who have experience of supervising children. They will carry out registration twice per day and escort the students to and from the programme. A chaperone will be available 24 hours per day should students need any assistance.
Meals are included if the accommodation option is selected and booked. Should you have any dietary requirements we shall do our best to accommodate them subject to the ability of UCL to do so. We shall ask you about any dietary requirements in a separate form after you have booked.
Nationals of certain countries require visas to visit the UK. You can check by visiting https://www.gov.uk/check-uk-visa
Once you have registered we shall send you a form to complete which asks for basic information such as your name, address, contact, and passport details. You must bring your passport with you for check-in.
A chaperone will be available 24 hours per day (from the time students check-in until the end of the programme) should students need any assistance.
Registration takes place twice per day at the halls of residence:
Students must be present for each registration.
We ask that students are back on Ramsay Hall premises by 21:30 and do not permit students to leave the halls of residence after that time.
Our programmes are an opportunity for students to experience professional life. As such, we expect our students to behave like young adults. Any student who displays any behaviour that would, in our reasonable opinion, be undesirable or whose behaviour we, or UCL, consider to be inappropriate, may be asked to leave the programme and the halls of residence immediately. Inappropriate behaviour includes the consumption of alcohol, rude behaviour towards others, and failure to turn up to registration
Parents can visit students but are not permitted to enter into the lecture hall itself as we try to create a professional environment. Parents are not allowed to stay overnight as UCL does not permit guests to stay in their halls of residence.
Only two nights’ accommodation is available. If you are only able to check-in on Saturday please let us know and we shall make arrangements for you.
Accommodation is non-refundable.
There is free WiFi access in all bedrooms.
