What is The Startup Showcase?

The Startup Showcase is a festival celebrating new creative businesses, which will feature over 100 pop-up shops representing the most exciting of London's emerging creative entrepreneurs. The event will be packed with talks and hands-on workshops, along with a number of lectures and panel discussions (see below for a full schedule), and for the truly brave, don't miss your chance to pitch to the bigwigs on Saturday and Sunday at the Startup Showcase pitching panel. Try your luck with experts including ex-Dragon's Den investor Doug Richard, Harvey Nichols Fashion Director, Paul Reed, renown restauranteur Oliver Peyton, Not on the High Street Co-founder Sophie Cornish and many others.
