This event has already received numerous enquiries about mentoring and attending. Unfortunately we are only offering limited tickets in order to ensure all attendees receive appropriate attention from mentors and sponsors, and to ensure we can keep team sizes reasonble.
When: Friday the 28th of October to Sunday 30th of October. See the agenda for full details
Where: UCL Engineering Front Building, Torrington Place, London, WC1E 6. See the directions for a map and accommodation
Cost: From £29.95 including drinks on Friday and drinks and pizza on Sunday. Purchase tickets now

We hope you can make it!

The Startup Leadership Program is a 6 month program spread across a few Saturdays and 12 evening classes. The program covers a wide range of topics that are relevant to people starting their own business and it sounds like it builds a strong bond between all who attend the event.
Statistics show that previous participants in the program have typically been in the technology field and together they have raised over $90 million in VC funding. Last year over 140 people participated in the program globally.
It sounds like a great program that offers a lot to its participants. Applications are screened and only the best people are accepted, the London program will only accept 25 participants. If the participant can afford it, the program does ask for £250.00 from each participant.
If you would like more information or apply visit the London Chapter site. Applications close on the 15th of August.

Capital on Stage is a bit of a different conference, instead of startups pitching and investors listening they are attempting to turn the process on it’s head. They hope investors will present and startups will listen.
This is a very interesting concept and I think it could be very valuable to startups who attend as they will hear from investors:
- their views on the market
- their added value
- what they’re looking for in their next investments
The organisers have partnered with startup events, incubators, and accelerators such as Launch48 to ensure the audience contains high-growth, scalable startups. Attendees will be able to book 20 minutes with different investors in the morning to discuss their business ideas with them.
If you would like to attend the event on the 14th of September 2011 in Amsterdam please complete this form and mention you’re from Launch48 so they know you’ve received some prior training.
