Startup Summer School

Got a great idea for a business, side-hustle, or creative project? These events will help you make it a reality

Regardless of if you’re taking the first steps in your entrepreneurial journey or you’ve already launched an idea, the world of startups can be a complex and confusing one to navigate.

This is where our Startup Summer School comes in. With workshops happening every other Tuesday from June-September 2021, hear from industry experts, independent change makers, and ground-breaking culture shapers on how to build your creative and entrepreneurial mindset and take your ideas to the next level.

Whether you’ve got a budding idea for a creative project in content creation and the arts, or if you’re looking to set up your own platforms, channels, and businesses – this series will equip you with the tools to do it!

Sign up to the individual workshops below and make sure to subscribe to our newsletter to get the latest series announcements.

About the series

This series is open to everyone! But, sessions will be more targeted to people aged between 18-24 and/or early-stage entrepreneurs or those looking to start their own creative channels, projects, platforms, and businesses.

Unless told otherwise, all sessions will be held online via Zoom. Once you’ve booked your place on Eventbrite, you will be sent a joining link on the day of the event.

We want everyone to be able to take part. So, if you have any access requirements, please feel free to get in touch with us at

All online sessions will be recorded. If you don’t want to be included in the recording, please turn your camera off!
