We run events and workshops

To help budding entrepreneurs learn, connect and be inspired.

We've developed a reputation for running high-value events for startups. This is because we focus on the fundamentals of what the people we run events for want:

  • Honest, empathetic and interesting speakers
  • Who share specific knowledge based on their own experience
  • In an environment where people feel comfortable to be themselves and to question things.

Run a workshop with us

If you have a uniquely valuable skill, process or experience that you think our community would find valuable, we'd love to hear about it.

We can help to design and market your event, to ensure it fits in with what the founders in our community want. We work on a revenue share basis, based on who provides what value. We can run physical or digital events, depending on where you are based.
