Software East is running this event in collaboration with Cambridge Network & Startup Masterclass.


Startup Masterclass

The programme supports early-stage businesses located in the East of England. Its overall aim is to provide a means for promoting an inspiring culture and a “can do” environment for the creation and growth of such ventures. Starting and growing a business is as much about having innovative ideas as it is about execution.

While the programme focuses primarily on start-ups and SMEs with 10 employees or less, it will also benefit freelancers & individuals considering launching their own business venture.

The programme is supported by: ideaSpace Enterprise Accelerator, Cambridge Clean Tech, CamTechNet, Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning and CUTEC
