Who is it for?

City students and graduates of undergraduate or postgraduate degrees can join the cohort and benefit from the services, support and community to develop their ventures for up to 12 months.

We welcome solopreneurs starting out as well teams of up to six members – please note that at least one of the co-founders need to be a City student / graduate.

If you are launching or have recently launched your venture and want the support of a startup community, this could be for you!

The main purpose of the City Launch Lab is to help students and graduates of City, University of London in the early stages of venture creation.

If you are selected to join the space we will work with you to establish your business goals and coach you through achieving these objectives. 12 months isn’t long and we want to make sure that you make the most of your time as residents of the Launch Lab.
