San Francisco, California

Starting a business is hard and lonely but it doesn’t have to be. It's an amazing feat & Virgin StartUp and Bathtub 2 Boardroom exist to celebrate people exactly like you.
We believe, beyond anything, that with the right support at the right time, you can achieve exactly what you want – to make a living from doing what you love.
We’re here to show you the power of co-working and staying social in getting a business of any type up and running and keep it up and running. Not only that, it makes the journey so much more enjoyable, productive and supportive.
What you’ll experience:
- Hearing the stories of start-ups ranging from just launched to 18 months down the line
- A Q&A to ask those further along from you exactly what mattered to them and made the biggest differences
- A chance to sample some amazingly creative start-up products and chat with the people behind the products
- Time to chat with Founders, Mentors, Business Advisors and the teams from Virgin StartUp and Bathtub 2 Boardroom
Why is this different to any other start-up event? Because this is about you, not us.
We’re completely exposing ourselves (cheeky!) and some incredible start-ups who’ve experienced the definite downs and the undeniable ups to show you that the reality of starting a business can be lonely, difficult and darn hard work, but that it can be brilliant, inspiring and shared.
We really hope you’ll join us.
And a little bit about why Virgin StartUp and Bathtub 2 Boardroom are jumping in the Bathtub together:
At B2B and VSU we offer accessible, educational, community-led support that focusses on you, the entrepreneur. We’re here to make start-up journeys easier, more enjoyable and increase chances of succeeding no matter who you are. Not enough budding and new entrepreneurs believe this is possible, so we’re partnering up to do something about it.
Disabled access: The event is being held on the first floor and we're really sorry to say that there is no lift access. Our apologies for this less than ideal situation and thanks for your understanding.
