London Venture Crawl

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 AwardSign up to our newsletter and keep and eye out for details about Venture Crawl 2021. 



Venture Crawl 2020

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.
