San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Years of experience condensed into a one-hour lowdown.
If you're launching a startup in London, there are so many critical resources and people who can help you, yet you probably don't know about them. It takes time to get to know your way around the startup space, but consider this an introductory crash course into the incubators, VCs, events, people, meetups, blogs, and companies you should be aware of. We aim to make this one of the most useful hours you'll ever spend, condensing years of experience into a single info-packed session. Learn about General Assembly, White Bear Yard, Google Campus, Seedcamp, and more.
