Event Details

WHO?

YHP, the leading UK-focused entrepreneurship web publication, and Brightside, the national online mentoring charity, have teamed up to present: Get Up, Start Up!

WHAT?

Simple really: Come with an idea; leave with up to £10,000 to make a reality of it.

We're on a mission to create up to 100 businesses - all in one day!

HOW?

In this unique day-long business event, attendees will receive:

  1. Free business plan guidance: Participate in a workshop led by Deloitte, one of the leading professional services firms in the UK with significant expertise in business strategy. This workshop  will see you turn your business idea into a business plan
  2. Funding: Apply for up to £10,000 in Government startup loan funding* and a personal business mentor; find out on the day whether your application has been successful
  3. First class advice: Meet young entrepreneurs and business professionals one-to-one; learn from them about the strategies you need to create a successful business 

WHO CAN ATTEND?

To be eligible to attend, you need to:

  • Have a business idea that you want to turn into a business
  • Have not had your business idea up and running for longer than a year
  • Be aged 18-30 years old
  • Be living in England
  • Be seeking up to £10,000 of funding for your business idea

WHERE?

Innovation Warehouse, one of London’s top business incubator co-working spaces.

GREAT, HOW MUCH IS IT?

The best bit is that the whole day is FREE. This is made possible by the kind generosity of the event sponsors, Innovation Warehouse and Deloitte.

However, due to the nature of this event, demand is high and places are limited – you are strongly encouraged to apply early to avoid disappointment.

 


*The Government’s startup loans initiative is a £110 million government-backed scheme, led by Prime Minister David Cameron and chaired by former Dragon’s Den investor and serial entrepreneur, James Caan.
