A 12-hour tour on a double-decker bus, visiting some of London’s most innovative hot spots sounds exciting, right?
Set up by the Entrepreneurship Institute in 2017 with one bus, London Venture Crawl has since grown to an annual event with 16 universities, 10 buses and 400 students participating in 2020, with parallel events taking place in Birmingham, Manchester, Chicago and Melbourne!
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. Sign up to our newsletter and keep and eye out for details about Venture Crawl 2021.
