Will this be the year you startup?
There has never been a better time to start a business. Amidst the challenges of the past 2 years, a record number of new startups have flourished.
Virgin StartUp helped thousands to fund, start and grow the businesses they're passionate about - and now we want to help you.
If you're thinking of starting or growing a business in 2022, then you won't want to miss our first MeetUp of the year.
During the panel discussion and breakout sessions, we'll uncover just what goes into starting up, what it costs, and what you need to know before you take the leap.
Start 2022 as you mean to go on. It's time to startup.
On the panel:
- Lynsander Bickham, Co-founder and CEO of Leo's Box
- Jill Henry, Co-founder of Apparel
- Robert Ford, Co-founder of Box & Sprout
All three of the founders on our panel were funded with a Start Up Loan from Virgin StartUp. Find out how we can help you startup and thrive by joining the Q&A after the panel discussion where our team will be on hand to answer any questions you have.
What is a MeetUp
Our MeetUps are designed for digital, and free to attend. A time for our community to come together, learn from experts, founders and each other, to find inspiration and guidance, and to come away with practical solutions to act on.
Alongside the panel discussion, there’ll be a chance for audience questions before we break out into post-panel sessions, where you can take time to reflect on the interview, explore the themes of the discussion, ask questions of each other and learn more about Virgin StartUp.
Thanks to our partnership with Virgin Money, we’re able to make our MeetUp events free to attend, providing thousands of early-stage founders with the support they need to start and scale businesses in the UK.
