Since 2017, Warwick Kickstart has empowered student entrepreneurs. Here's a snapshot of our achievements:

  •  Xelerate: Have a venture? This is your chance to pitch for angel and venture capital funding into your business. Collaborate with industry leaders for invaluable insights and mentorship, and experience an exhilarating firsthand journey through the startup lifecycle with the largest startup accelerator platform in the UK.

At our core, we prioritise educating students, bringing in speakers to share their journeys and processes, and offering career opportunities to help students excel in these fields. While supporting student startups is crucial, we recognize that not all students are driven by entrepreneurial ideas. Hence, securing a position in these industries, startups, or VCs acts as an excellent entry point into this realm.
