Description


Start up 54

Do you want to start building your future and help change the world in just 54 hours?

In collaboration with EY Foundation, Foundervine are bringing #SU54 Social Enterprise to 1 More London Place on 25 - 27 May.

Startup 54 brings together ambitious changemakers, young professionals and aspiring social entrepreneurs to form teams, build prototypes and launch new business ventures. Participants select ideas with the most promise and make as much progress on the business as possible over the course of only 54 hours. In addition, business leaders and mentors are on hand to share their insights and experience.

This immersive three day experience is designed to launch new ventures that have a strong social impact. Entrepreneurs will be immersed in the ideal environment for start-up magic to happen.

Who is the event for?

  • Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

  • Are you a budding social entrepreneur with an idea that can solve a social, economic or environmental issue?

  • Are you a business professional interested in how we can do business differently?

  • Are you a developer, UX/UI designer or tech professional who wants to make a difference?

  • Do you want to get hands on and learn by doing about business design, market research and developing a prototype?

  • Do you want to get mentoring from insiders, business advisors, technological experts and social enterprise gurus?

Startup 54 is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Startup 54 is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:

  • A series of masterclasses by expert business advisors

  • 1-2-1 and group mentoring sessions with brilliant mentors

  • Membership of the Foundervine Community and access to a network of professionals, gamechangers and social entrepreneurs like you

  • Internet access and lots of space to work

Lunch is not provided in the cost of your ticket. However, More London has a vibrant selection of cafes and restaurants to grab a bite throughout the weekend!
