Help us support 1,000 entrepreneurs by 2021!

By stuart duncan

We’re on a mission to deliver peer-to-peer business support to 1,000 entrepreneurs by 2021, and we need your help to get there.

We’ve teamed up with some incredible programme partners over the past 3 years, including Grub Club and London College of Fashion to shape our programming, and have built a dynamic community of business owners and start-ups through to large organisations and education institutions – who have all contributed to bringing our programmes to life‎.

Following a successful pilot year in 2015-16, we built on our learnings and designed and delivered a further six programmes in 2016-18. We’re proud to have supported 200+ entrepreneurs to date, and with your help, we can reach many more.

We’re now looking for talented individuals to join our existing contributor pool – could that be you?

Are you looking to support and engage with East London entrepreneurs? You could be an experienced session lead looking for a new audience, an entrepreneur keen to add presenting and workshops to your skillset, or a contributor wanting to test new material. Whichever camp best describes you, you’ll have the chance to:

– connect with a motivated group of early-stage entrepreneurs

– earn time credits to spend on business services, wellbeing and fun experiences

– spark some great connections

What’s required of you?

Our programmes run 3-4 times year. We have all sorts of opportunities ranging from joining a panel Q+A, giving a guest talk, leading a workshop, providing 121 surgeries and judging our Demo Day pitch events. There really is something for everyone – all we ask is a minimum commitment to deliver a 1-3 hr session for at least one programme (subject to content fit).
