Introduction to the London Startup Scene
Thursday, 11 September 2014 from 19:00 to 21:00 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
You want to start a business but you have no idea where to begin.
You're interested in learning more about how to transition from the corporate world into the world of startups but you're not quite sure how.
You'd like to meet other aspiring entrepreneurs as well as more experienced entrepreneurs but you don't know where to find them.
You need some encouragement on knowing whether or not to pursue the startup path but you don't know who to ask.
Come and join us to learn from Devin Hunt, a founding partner of Founder Centric and a teacher on our Startup MBA program, who will be speaking about:
- How to learn what you need to know in order to launch a business effectively;
- How to meet other entrepreneurs and what to look for in a business partner;
- How to take advantages of the resources available to new entrepreneurs in London, like cheap or free office space, free access to those absurdly expensive industry reports and white papers, and 3D printers for product prototyping;
- How to access the best funding and support programs for young companies.
