  • Plan for financial success and understand the key pitfalls in surviving years 1-2

The workshop applies proven methodology to accelerate effective development of start-up teams, covering fundamental principles whilst facilitating actionable outputs for the participants.

The sessions will be held over two days, from 9am – 5pm at IDEALondon, 69 Wilson Street, EC1A 2BB.
