Our monthly Workbench series of workshops, which takes place every first Thursday of the month, is for impact entrepreneurs who want to take their start-up to the next level.

Each Workbench tackles one of six regularly rotating topics: legal advice, marketing & sales, finance & funding, organisational culture & structure, sustainable operations, and impact measurement.

If you’re getting your start-up ready for takeoff, sign up for our basic-level workbenches. And if you’re already working hard on scaling your venture, join our advanced-level sessions.

Each basic- or advanced-level Workbench consists of a mini masterclass, while the advanced editions also include individual sparring sessions with experts.
