Start-Ups Invited To January Workshops
Posted on 23rd December 2013
A scheme set up almost a year ago is inviting entrepreneurs the chance to receive tailored one-to-one advice from the founders and investors in some of the world’s most successful brands.
Tech City ‘Start-Up Kitchen’ will provide themed workshops led by the likes of Skype, Innocent and Secret Escapes, with a view to providing expert insight into areas such as funding, innovation, branding and product development in order to support the growth of new businesses.
Starting on January 30, when the workshop will be based on funding, the ‘kitchens’ will run on a monthly basis until August and entrepreneurs will be able to use them to gain inspiration from experienced business owners. At each workshop, a handful of start-ups will also be selected to receive one-to-one advice on their business strategy.
Set up by creative agency Albion London, the workshops are designed as a ‘sitting around the kitchen table’ discussion for only two or three start-up teams at a time, where entrepreneurs can chat to the sort of people they would rarely meet in other circumstances.
Founder and CEO of Albion London, Jason Goodman, said that he and the team have worked alongside many of the big brands which will be participating in the ‘kitchen’ workshops and wants to be able to present young companies with the opportunity of gaining an insight into business that could really make a difference to their own enterprise.
Entrepreneurs who are interested in applying to attend should visit Albion London’s website, where the workshops and speakers are described in some detail, and click on the session or sessions that appeal to them, explaining why they believe the workshop would benefit them.
