Why you should attend

Here are some of the many reasons why you should come to a Venture Creation Weekend:


Venture Creation Weekends are about learning through the act of creating. Don’t just listen to theory, build your own strategy and test it as you go. Visit the Idea Transform website for success stories.

Build your network

By spending a weekend working to build scalable companies that solve real-world problems, you will build long-lasting relationships and possibly walk away with a job, a team or an investor.

Co-founder "dating"

We all know it's not just about the idea – it's about the team. Venture Creation Weekends are the best way to find someone you can actually launch a start-up with.

Learn a new skill

With a whole weekend dedicated to letting your creative juices flow, Venture Creation Weekends are a perfect opportunity to work on a new platform, or just to try something different.

Actually launch a business

Roughly 80 per cent of participants plan on continuing working with their team or start-up after the weekend, and over 36 per cent of ventures are still going strong after three months.

Share ideas with and be inspired by thought leaders

Cambridge- and London-based start-up leaders will attend the weekends as coaches and judges. Technology experts from CISCO will participate by WebEx and TelePresence.
