How the Startups team can help you
The Essex Startups team supports students and graduates who are interested in starting their own business and want to discuss, develop, test and launch their ideas. No matter where you are in your startup journey, we are here to help you with advice, workshops and tips. With a range of highly skilled mentors, you can be sure that we can offer trusted and sincere advice on your next steps.
We are here to help you if:
- you've got an idea for a business
- you're starting your business
- your business is up and running
Throughout the academic year we also host a variety of workshops, bootcamps, funding competitions and activities, all tailored to help you get business ready. You can find these by searching for 'Essex Startups' on CareerHub or by keeping track of our events on Facebook.

1:1 Advice sessions
We are on hand to offer free one to one business advice to students, staff and graduates of the University. These sessions can offer guidance and practical information to help you develop your ideas and structure your start-up.
In these sessions, you can talk about your business ideas and find out how the University can help you to move your business forward. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a Zoom call.
Our drop-in sessions are available for you to have a quick chat or ask questions to one of our team in a more informal way than a 1:1. Just pop in to Studio X in the Innovation Centre during the allocated drop-in times and chat to one of our team.
Please note: Drop-in sessions are currently unavailable due to COVID-19 pandemic.
