Are you ready to StepUp with your business?

The StepUp Masterclass Series is a collection of expert-led workshops on topics of relevance to start-ups looking to scale.

Developed as an extension of the hugely popular Virgin StartUp StepUp Accelerator Programme, this collection of masterclasses offers you the opportunity to deep-dive into subject areas relevant to start-ups looking to scale.

Each masterclass is hosted by a subject matter expert, who will offer their invaluable insight and help you develop your understanding, not just of the theory, but of how that theory can be practically applied to the benefit of your business.

By purchasing and enrolling on the series, you can tailor your experience to the requirements of your start-up, by selecting the 8 masterclasses of most relevance to you. This could even include Virgin StartUp's flagship masterclass, Doing Business with Big Business! (and will save you over £145 vs the individual ticket prices!)
