What our alumni say about Start Me Up

“The exposure to startups and their founders was incredible. Being part of a co-working community meant there were so many project opportunities in a variety of business sectors.”

Ian Leung, Cambridge University, UK

“It was amazing. I made really great connections professionally and personally.

The soft skills and hard skills you learn here you can apply to almost anything.”

Juan Carlos Ramirez, York University, Canada

“I spent a truly wonderful month on this program. I worked with the CTO of a startup helping him code their website. I had very limited coding experience before coming here. And by the end of the month, I was developing my own app! I have learned so much and the work I’ve been doing has been more stimulating than anything I’ve done in a long time.”

Abby Mitchell, UCL, UK

“I learned a huge variety of essential skills from marketing to web development. I have also had access to mentors and industry leaders to help me with my own startup idea. The wealth of experiences and contacts were invaluable.”
