How to apply?

First up, you don’t have to be a WeWork member to apply. The rest is equally simple - you’ll need to complete an online application, record and share a 90 second pitch video and then submit - Hooray!

You will then be notified approximately two weeks before your regional event, if you’ve been shortlisted to pitch in person.

UK and Irish startups have until August 24th to get their application in, with the relevant London event happening on September 14th. If you just want to make the most of the day with the job fair and maker's market, enjoy live music and free cocktails to toast the winners, RSVP here
