Meet outside the Bank of England for a walking tour of London’s business and financial hub. Surrounded by huge building that are centuries old, you’ll learn about the city’s development over the centuries.
Time for a hands-on session in a co-working breakout space. After an introductory chat, divide into groups and brainstorm ideas for a start-up company. With help from your guide, each group will come up with 1-2 ideas.
Take a break for lunch and chill out in the shared dining area of the co-working space.
Make your way to the office of a London-based start-up ready for the next activity.
Take the opportunity to hear directly from a start-up. The speaker will talk you through their experience on what it was like setting up a company, the challenges they’ve faced and will give you advice on how to follow a similar path. Have some questions prepped for the Q&A segment – if you’ve got any bright ideas on your own business, now’s your time to test them out!
Example start-up firms include the Lingvist language-learning app, Instagram influencer and digital marketing agency, Filli Studios, and advertising-for-good platform, The Good Loop.
