A space for early-stage East London business founders
to test, grow, learn and share.
15th and 16th September 2018
The Echo++ Weekender is your space to explore your idea, expand your skill-set, and connect with a diverse group of 30 entrepreneurial East Londoners over an intensive 2-day programme.
We’re giving you 48 hours to stress-test your idea, explore why customers need what you’re creating and how you’ll get their attention. We’ll put your creative problem-solving skills to the test and give you space to learn by collaborating with others. What you discover may surprise you, and by the end you’ll be equipped with the skills to set a solid foundation for your business, and new expertise which you can immediately apply not only to your venture, but to any job, role or project.
“It’s almost unbelievable that this kind of programme is accessible just by giving a bit of your time and effort to the community. Echo is a fantastic model and I feel very privileged to be part of it.”

Building on the success of two programmes working with 70 participants, we’re offering a further 30 early stage business founders and would-be-entrepreneurs the chance to connect with each other, local businesses and industry experts. Over two immersive days you’ll share experiences, access knowledge, and unlock skills and resources to achieve holistic growth for yourself and your business venture – and all this without the hefty price tag!
This new programme builds on our tried and tested Echo++ business accelerator approach – connecting local businesses and experts willing to share skills, knowledge and resource to achieve holistic growth.
And there’s no money involved: our programme is paid for, and powered by, the skills and knowledge shared and connections and collaborations created among our members. Learn more.
