Expert insights into Accelerator Programmes

Startups! On Monday 25th April come and join us for an informal meetup and social event at Club Workspace Clerkenwell!

Once again we will be taking over the Club Workspace basement to host an evening where all manner of tech & digital startups can learn, share, connect, and enjoy the craic!

During the meetup we will be holding a 50 minute session on ensuring success before, during, and after an accelerator programme. This will include industry-leading guest speakers sharing insider’s perspectives on how to give a stellar performance throughout your accelerator experience.
