Event description


Have you been sitting on an idea for a while but haven’t had time, money or confidence to start it?

Are you curious about the world of startups, side-hustles and freelance careers?

Wanting to branch out on your own and create something is a very common desire – yet so few of us act on it, because of our other commitments.

This evening online workshop will give you tools, tricks and inspiration to set up your businesses whilst remaining in employment.

Who is this for?

  • The entrepreneurially frustrated: learn what small steps can enable you to explore that entrepreneurial itch alongside your current day to day.
  • Community lovers: build your network
  • Advice hunters: practical tips to help you start your sidebusiness
  • Doers: action focused exercises to launch your business in an evening

You’ll get started on your business, right in the (virtual) room, surrounded and encouraged by your fellow attendees!

How does it work?

The workshop takes place online. You can join us via a computer, tablet or mobile device. Once you've reserved your place, we'll send you full details of how to take part.

What can you expect?

Part 1 - Ideas: How do we form them? How do we choose which one to work on?

Part 2 - Building: How do we build the first version of an idea with minimal time and money?

Part 3 - Testing: How do we test the first version of an idea with minimal marketing channels?

Who is Escape The City?

We’re on a mission to help one million people to do work that matters to them and the world. Not just to find more fulfilling work but create it too. Online and offline we’ve seen first hand the incredible power in connecting likeminded, motivated, passionate people.

Whether it’s a small step or a brave leap, we’ve learned that amazing outcomes and inspiring change is best achieved together.

We want to wake people up to what work can really look like. To careers built on freedom, passion, autonomy, fulfilment, and purpose. To more connected and more meaningful lives. To 21st Century Careers, built on their terms, not someone else’s.

We’re doing it because we believe a million more people doing work that matters to them will change the world.
