What is it?

The CitySpark Workshops series is a 4-week workshop programme for student and graduate entrepreneurs who want to develop, test, and improve their business ideas prior to entry in the CitySpark Grand Final 2021 and increase their chances of winning one of the 5 x £5000 awards. We also welcome any participants who are in the early stages of developing a business and would like to build clarity around their strategy.

Delivered on Wednesday afternoons from 2.00pm until 3.30pm, these lively and engaging workshops will introduce you to the tools you can use and provides hands-on tips and advice for founders to validate their thinking and build a strong business case.


In each workshop we will introduce tools or exercises to help you build a strong understanding of all the key areas of your startup idea. We will then want you to work with us, using these tools, to build a strong base and a sturdy structure to build your business on.

Places on the workshops are limited and will be made available each Tuesday the week prior the workshops taking place.
