Held from November 14-19, Entrepreneurs Festival will bring together more than 300 of the best and brightest entrepreneurs from across Europe to meet, train and pitch to the top mentors, entrepreneurs and investors from the UK, USA and Europe.

Organised as part of London’s Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Festival is designed to give young tech and digital companies a competitive advantage by accelerating their start-up phase through an intense week of business boot camp training sessions with the industry’s most successful leaders.
