30 days to go!

By Sarah Henderson

Have you got a business idea brewing? Starting something new and looking for the skills, support and network to make it happen?

In 30 days’ time (on 9th and 10th Sep), we’ll bring together 30 entrepreneurial souls, some of our favourite startup founders and expert workshop leaders for a festival of entrepreneurship, Echo-style. Applications are open until 23rd August.

>> Grow your tribe

Starting a business is way more fun when you do it with others! Network, share ideas and build connections with a cohort of 30 fellow local entrepreneurs, and add to your contact book with our specialist guest speakers, workshop leads and facilitators.

>> Meet the founders

We can’t wait to reveal which founders we’re bringing together this September to inspire, challenge, and encourage you on your entrepreneurial journey! Our previous guest founders running successful East London businesses include The Athenian, Kennedy City Bicycles, Grow Up Box, Grub Club, and Ella Doran.

>> Learn from experts

Whether you want to learn how to boss your PR strategy, write a winning pitch or attract investors, you’ll attend fireside chats and interactive workshops on a whole host of core startup topics.

>> Discover your startup style

Explore your leadership style, creative-problem solving approach and business modelling credentials under the guidance of expert startup consultants, Make Happy. Gain game-changing insights on your strengths and areas for improvement as an entrepreneur, and learn how you can make the very most of your skills and talent.

Need any further encouragement?

As with all Echo++ programmes, the Weekender is paid for not with money but with your time and skills. We’re offering the whole weekend for the subsidised price of 5 Echoes, which you can earn back by offering 5 hours of your skills and time to other Echo members during the weekend and afterwards.

Sounds good, right?

Get your application in by midnight on 23rd August.
