Team up with students from other universities

Essex Startups is co-organising a weekend event focused on helping you develop your entrepreneurial skills. You will be asked to think innovatively in teams and work on challenges set by our industry partners. We will also take part in a range of outdoor activities to let off some steam and get the creative juices flowing!

The event takes place at the Bowles Rocks in Tunbridge, Kent. We will spend 3 days accompanied by students from University of Kent, Harlow College University and University of East Anglia. Accommodation, transport, and food are provided by us, allowing you to focus on teamwork, creative thinking and innovation.

Due to high popularity and limited spaces, an application process has been put in place. If you want to take part, fill in the short application form stating why you would like to attend and how this opportunity may benefit you. Spaces are very limited and the applications close 13 January 2020. A £15 deposit will be taken per successful student to guarantee attendance. This will be returned to each student upon arrival.
