London Venture Crawl

Join us for a unique 12 hour entrepreneurial journey around London by Routemaster bus! 


Set up by the Entrepreneurship Institute in 2017 with one bus, in 2018, King's teamed up with eight other London universities to run six buses with 30 innovation hub partners. 

The journey takes students to some of London's top innovation hubs and workspaces to experience London's startup ecosystem first-hand and meet top entrepreneurial leaders. Participants take part in behind the scenes tours, talks and activities. The event is designed to give students the opportunity to connect to real-world businesses, be inspired by the UK’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem, and gain skills in self-confidence, creative-thinking and leadership.VIP passengers hop on board the buses to share their stories and stimulate conversations, peer-to-peer learning and idea sharing.

The Venture Crawl is free for King's students and contributes towards the King's Enterprise Award

“The best way to learn about entrepreneurship and innovative thinking is to experience it first-hand; to meet the people who are creating new jobs and coming up with creative ways to meet society’s challenges. We have the world’s top innovators right on our doorstep and we want students to take full advantage of that. Partnering allows us to build on our shared networks and have diverse conversations. The universities involved all have different specialisms but we share common goals about enterprise education. We’re putting students at the heart of the action.” The Venture Crawl team
