Welcome to The Startup Events – a community for founders by founders. Our purpose is to foster learning, share experiences, and amplify the UK’s startup community globally. test

About Us


We are the heartbeat of innovative startups, the bold dreamers turning groundbreaking ideas into reality. We are founders, not just of companies, but of new ways of thinking and doing. We are the minds behind the innovations that disrupt industries and redefine possibilities.

We are the curious, relentlessly pursuing knowledge and solutions. We are the risk-takers, unafraid of uncharted territories. We are the builders, creating not just businesses, but entire ecosystems that foster growth and creativity.

Our community is a melting pot of extraordinary talent – thinkers, makers, doers, and dreamers united by a shared ambition to leave a mark on the world. We are diverse in our backgrounds but united in our mission: to build, innovate, and lead the future of business.

We Are The Change-Makers. We Are You.

Join us in this journey where your innovative ideas are your identity, your vision your guide. Here, every startup founder, every innovative thinker, finds a place to grow, collaborate, and succeed. We are the collective force of startup innovation – diverse, dynamic, and determined to drive change.
