Over the course of one day and through free events, we are offering inspiration, networking opportunities, knowledge and skills, to entrepreneurs and students who are curious about their potential, and anyone in the city who plays a part in making Edinburgh a great place to live, study and work. The Startup Festival is a University of Edinburgh Business School production, in association with the E Club.
Through storytelling, workshops, games and debates, we are showcasing entrepreneurial DNA and know-how across all walks of life. Covering a range of sectors, including tech, retail, finance, creative industries and others, the festival unpacks a whole range of entrepreneurial creations, from businesses to community-building projects with talks delivered by startup innovators and business owners.
