CityStarters Weekend

Calling All (Aspiring) Student Entrepreneurs!

Are you looking to solve real-world problems? Have you got a business idea but no team to launch your startup with? Or are you looking for a learning opportunity to increase your employability skills?

Cass Business School are inviting all City students to join our awesome CityStarters Weekend and change the world!

What is it?

Have you ever heard of 'hackathons' or startup weekends before?

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.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur or an aspiring entrepreneur, come to our CityStarters Weekend 2019, find your co-founder, create something beautiful and build something amazing!

Watch previous year’s CityStarters Weekend highlights and you’ll definitely want to join us this year!

  • 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

  • last but not least, make your CV stand out and increase your entrepreneurship skills.
