Engineering your way to a startup

About this Event

Do you work in tech? Have you thought about building the next unicorn or joining one? Have a drink with us for our first tech talk series, and learn what it takes to make the jump from engineer to entrepreneur. Hosted by Founders Factory, hear from our own founders starting their journey alongside some at later stage.

You'll also get to see Founders Factory in action with a short tour of the offices, meet some of the wider team and hear about our curated community of the world's most exceptional entrepreneurs, Hatch.

Looking forward to welcoming you then.

Please note tickets are limited and will be reserved for engineers and data scientists only.
