How we got our startup from idea to launch
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 6:30 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
We’ve got a really exciting evening planned for February's Esc Wednesday - our special guests are the co-founders of an exciting internet start-up called Kicktable. They'll be sharing their corporate escape stories and their start-up story so far. Then we'll have a big Q&A.
UPDATE - unfortunately Matt has been urgently called to Belgium and so George will be manning this Esc Wednesday solo. Don't worry though - he'll have more than enough advice and answers to go round!
Introducing Kicktable: Do what you like. Share what you love. Discover & book unique experiences hosted by passionate people: http://www.kicktable.com/
5 Reasons why you should join us for the talk and Q&A:

When & Where
Escape the City - The Escape School
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?"
