CityStarters Weekend

Inviting City students to a weekend of creativity and innovation, helping you to launch your very own startup!

What is the CityStarters Weekend?

Our CityStarters Weekend is a weekend-long event where all City, University of London students (developers, designers, marketers and startup enthusiasts) will come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and hopefully launch startups. 

Why attend?

Our CityStarters Weekend offer you the chance to: 

  • pitch your idea and inspire other attendees to join your team (If you don’t have an idea that’s fine too, you can still vote for and join your favourite team)
  • receive coaching from and network with entrepreneurs and industry professionals
  • learn about validating your idea, product and customer development, learn startup methods, Minimal Viable products and so much more!
  • pitch to a panel of judges for a chance to win start-up funds (a total of £6,000 to be spent on the startup if you win a prize)
  • last but not least, make your CV stand out and increase your entrepreneurship skills.
Apply Now

This event is free and we would love to invite as many students as possible. However space is limited so please apply as early as possible as we will invite students on a ‘first-come first-served’ basis.
