Take part in our monthly events

As well as our monthly Founders’ Friday events, we also run these informal networking / drop-in sessions for our Members inside the Startup Week Community Facebook Group:

  • MONDAY MEETUP – On the first Monday of every month between 7pm-8pm, these take place within a ‘Room’ (Facebook’s version of a group Zoom chat)
  • THURSDAY THINK – On the first Thursday of every month between 8.30am-9.30am, these take within a ‘Room’ (Facebook’s version of a group Zoom chat)

To join, just go into the Facebook Group at the time above & then you can ‘Join the Room’.

Need more in-depth 1-2-1 advice?

If you’re feeling overwhelmed by how much you have to do or want to do this year & not making much progress, you might want to do our ‘5 Star Focus Programme’ which we run on the second week of each month for up to 5 people (max). It’s normally £500 per person but as a Member you can do this for the reduced price of £425 by emailing paul@newcasrlestartupweek.com
