An introduction to building a startup
Tuesday, February 19, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
This is an intensive full-day course packed full of practical advice on starting a business when you have little entrepreneurial experience.
As well the individual day you will have access to an online classroom where you will be invited to introduce yourself to the other students and do a broad range of pre-work and reading. This means that the day itself can focus on interaction and conversation rather than the more passive sit-and-learn.
We're really excited about bringing a group of enterpreneurially-minded people together - especially at the early stages of the startup journey (which are often the most exciting and scary). On the evening before the course we will invite you to a social event so you can all get to know each other before the course.
Why should you come on this course?
Rob is an ex-management consultant who co-founded Escape the City. For the past 3 years he has been at the coalface of starting a business. He frequently talks about careers and start-ups and his first book The Escape Manifesto, is publishing this April.
Adele co-founded her own social enterprise out of university, has worked in startups for 5 years and has taught at General Assembly and guest-lectured at Media Design School. She is writing a book called The Lean Graduate - about entrepreneurial careers.

This is the course we wish we had taken three years ago when we escaped from management consulting to start Escape the City. We’ve spent a lot of time figuring things out for ourselves that we really could have learnt quite easily given the right opportunity. We have developed this course to help the next wave of corporate escapees stand a greater chance of building a successful startup and not having to return to their jobs!
We hope you decide to join us.
All the best,
Dom and Rob

This is for those wanting to start a scalable business. If you're interested in building a smaller, one-person business or a lifestyle business, check out our Lifestyle Startup courses: here and here.
The Escape School is Escape the City's events arm.
We put on courses, events and meetups aimed at educating and empowering corporate professionals for alternative career paths, entrepreneurialism and adventure.
There is so much rubbish career and startup advice out there. So many unhelpful myths. We are building the Escape School to teach what we wish we’d learnt back in 2009 when we were stuck… sitting glumly on the Tube wondering how on earth to get out.
If Escape the City is a community that helps corporate professionals ‘do something different’ then the Escape School is where we engage closely with you (in the real world). It has been founded with one single objective: to help you grapple with that huge, scary, unmanageable yet exciting question: “What Next?"
