Set-up in 2017 by London Universities, the Venture Crawl has since grown to an annual event with 3 countries, 16 universities, 10 buses and 400 students participating in 2020, with events taking place in Birmingham, Chicago, Melbourne and Manchester!

This unique, one-day event is aimed at entrepreneurial-minded students to explore and be inspired by Manchester’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem. This event is designed to give you the chance to connect to real-world businesses, develop your skills, confidence and creative thinking, as well as establish useful connections and networks.

Whilst we can't jump aboard the Venture Crawl bus this year, we've collaborated with other Universities and we're working hard to re-create the experience digitally for you to connect with the UK’s most exciting start-ups, venture capital firms and enterprise hubs to learn about start-up journeys, social enterprise and impact, sustainability and more! The route's still being plotted, but you can expect to hear from big names such as Ben Francis (GymShark founder), Rolls-Royce, Mercarto Metropolitano, and Octopus Ventures.

The 2021 (virtual) Venture Crawl bus departs at 9 am on Wednesday, 10 March and will feature insightful and engaging content to develop your skills and broaden your knowledge. There will also be opportunities for networking with other like-minded students.
