What you'll do

Join Airbnb's startup programme for international entrepreneurs, startups, tech innovators, teams, and groups from around the world, to learn about building startups in Europe's fastest-growing ecosystem.

1. Begin at one of London's fastest-growing startup hubs. And hear insights about the history, culture, and growth of London's startup ecosystem, the new players, and big trends shaping people's lives and work.

2. Then participate in a mind-shifting accelerator session on building startups to experience and learn the process entrepreneurs go through building companies that address big problems, develop innovative new products, create new business models, grow into markets and build teams. Plus, learn how to better pitch to investors and raise investment.

3. Finally, see examples of some of the newest startups, tech platforms and entrepreneurial communities being built and grown in London, and lessons you can learn from them.

Anthony has a very broadly sharp insight into what makes a successful start up and it's not just theory either, his own vast personal experience is a testament to his success and the catalyst he has been to other peoples successes also. I'm so impressed as with all of the reading and studying I do, never have I ever come across the nebulous information about entrepreneurship delivered in such a beautifully clear and chronicle way. Don't even bother going if you aren't going to be absolutely attentive to what he's saying and extract as much information as you can from this man! Thanks a lot Anthony!

Anthony is a friendly and insightful mentor who can guide participants thinking the possibilities in future and startup business, and also advise on our business or start up issues. I got inspired during discussion with Anthony and all others, and have much takeaways from the tour. The experience is fantastic and highly recommended.

Anthony est un très bon hôte et une personne fort sympathique ! Il maîtrise son sujet et le fait que nous soyons en petit groupe fait que nous ayons beaucoup d'interaction avec lui et pouvons lui poser toutes les questions que l'on veut. Son expérience via les divers startup qu'il a coaché lui permet de nous répondre au mieux, je recommande ! Anthony is an amazing person and very insperational, we learn a lot about startup and He was able to answer all of our questions. Thanks for this amazing experience, I recommend it!

Anthony was very accommodating and insightful. The whole experience was delightful for me and I learned to think and approach the topic from new angles even though I come from an entrepreneurial background. I highly recommend the experience for aspiring entrepreneurs.
