The most expensive cost for early-stage entrepreneurs is often their own cost of living. Cut out your rent and your runway looks a lot more attractive. We experienced this same challenge in the early days of Escape the City.
So we're providing one lucky Escape the City member with everything they need to launch their business... rent-free living, daily lunches, and access to an office with other entrepreneurs (so you won't be sitting at home in your pyjamas).
Location - London (near Clapham Common, over the bridge from Chelsea).
[Note - that isn't the actual shed - shed is under construction - will be as comfortable as possible!]
The Escape Startup Shed
Summer 2014 (Approx. starting June 1st)
THIS IS NOT THE ACTUAL SHED - Shed under construction
What do you get?
We are providing one lucky person with everything they need to launch their business
You'll live rent free at Escape HQ (Battersea, London) for 3 months. You'll sleep in the Escape Shed - think less shed more log cabin. You'll also have access to all the chill out areas at Escape the City (Sky TV, shower, kitchen, broadband, Table Tennis).
A desk at ESC HQ
You'll also have a free desk at Escape the City HQ. You'll be working along side the 6 friendly folk who currently work at Escape the City.
Advice / Mentorship
We’ll give you access to the mentors, the investment links, the technical advice to help you launch your business.
