Applications open for the next Echo++ Weekender!

Tuesday 25 July 2017


Have you got a business idea brewing? Starting something new and looking for the skills, support and network to make it happen? Applications are now open for the next Echo++ Weekender, on 9th + 10th September 2017.

Back by popular demand following a sell-out Weekender programme in March, this time we’ll be supporting 30 budding entrepreneurs to get their idea off the ground or propel it forward. Our friends at Loughborough University will be hosting us at their Here East campus in the heart of London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park – an area where local start-ups and global established businesses are collaborating in exciting ways.

We’ll bring together 30 entrepreneurial souls, some of our favourite startup founders and expert workshop leaders for a festival of entrepreneurship, Echo-style.

You’ll discover your entrepreneurial style, stress-test your idea, expand your skillset, build your tribe and kick-start your business in one weekend.

Here’s what some of our Echo++ alumni had to say about our last Weekender programme:

“This time last week, I was going to call it quits and get an office job and return to the vicious cycle. Tomorrow, I’m starting my business!” – Emilia Luyindula, Weekender Participant, March 2017

“What a priceless experience! So much value and variety under one roof.” – Ray McSharry, Weekender Participant, March 2017

Find out more and apply by 23rd August.
