European Student Startups
ESS is Europe's first Angel and Venture Capital Competition held exclusively for students and reintroduced in 2016.

Start-Up Career Fair
In partnership with UCL, we bring to you the opportunity to be recruited into some of London's finest and most competitive start-ups for both paid internships and full-time positions. Such an initiative is especially useful for students looking to enter the entrepreneurship space, and invest their time in alternative careers.
The career fair is scheduled to take place in the start of Lent term, and thus will also benefit students still looking for summer jobs.
Workplace Tours provides students with an opportunity to visit and learn from some of the fastest growing start-ups in London and experience what day-to-day life at their offices is really like. Experience the famously sought after start-up culture first hand by joining us on a tour!
Workplace tours will happen once a term.
