We’re of the opinion that startups are the best place to truly scale your impact.

Startups are fast paced, highly rewarding and incredibly innovative. Startup employees can see the tangible impacts of their jobs and spend their days surrounded by smart, passionate and motivated people.

That’s why we run a range of programs each year designed for anyone, no matter the background or experience, to learn more about the world of startups and help people find their place in it.

If you’re intrigued by startups, come along to Liminal. It’s an immersive, one-week series of online panels, masterclasses and high-energy breakout sessions with leading startup employees, founders and investors. You’ll end the week with a better understanding of how your skills and experience can translate into a startup job, and new found clarity about what your future career could hold.

Register for Liminal now and get ready to shift your mindset and explore a potential career in startups.
