Everything You Need to Know
How much does it cost?
Venture Crawl online is free for your university to join. Staff from founding Venture Crawl London universities work behind the scenes to get it set up so enterprising students around the world can have access to great entrepreneurial content and connect with other.
All you have to do in return is provide a minimum of 1 hours worth of content to add to the map and/or live programme. Instructions on how to send your content to us to confirm your place will be emailed to you when you register your university.
What will the day look like?
The agenda for the day will be:
9:00 - 9:30 - Welcome and Keynote Speaker
9:30 - 13:00 - Venture Crawl Map and Live Programme
13:00 - 14:00 - Lunch and Networking
14:00 - 18:00 - Exploring the Map and Live Programme Continue
18:00 - 20:00 - Live Pitch Off!
One of the advantages of Venture Crawl Online is that students can dip in and out of sessions throughout the day or stay from start to finish!
What kind of content would we need to contribute?
We’re looking for content to add to the Venture Crawl map that students can navigate around throughout the day, tailoring their experience to their specific interests.
All content on The Map will be pre-recorded and can be sessions you’ve previously recorded or content that you would like to produce between now and the event. The Live Programme are opportunities for you to offer live webinars on a particular topic.
We have six themes that the content should be linked to:
The Start Up Journey
Acceleration and Investment
Social Enterprise and Impact
Digital and technology
The values of Venture Crawl are incredibly important to us and we are therefore looking for content that:
Work in collaboration with partners from the Entrepreneurial Eco System
We may not be able to visit them in person this year, but Venture Crawl is all about the students getting an insight into the eco system. In the past we have visited Google, Octopus Ventures, Plexal, WeWork to name a few… so who can you work with? Co-working spaces, accelerators, investment houses, corporates known for innovation, join forces with another university to create something – the options are endless!
We are committed to Justice, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and want to ensure this is embedded across the sessions for Venture Crawl this year. The Entrepreneurial landscape is vast – let’s make sure we represent this.
Will be fun and engaging
The students have enough lectures. Let’s make sure our sessions stand out as much as possible!
You can design your session however you’d like but some formats that may work well could be:
Demos/tours of spaces (*only where this can be done safely and in line with government guidelines!)
Some great examples from last year are:
How does the pitch competition work?
