General Admission Registrations period has ended.

Due to the high demand for our other London based workshops, we are bringing together innovative idea holders and aspiring entrepreneurs from Oxford, LBS and Imperial College London, to present and work on their business ideas at an Ignite workshop in Central Working Paddington.

Why join?

  • You are interested in developing your early-stage business idea in an international accelerator and competing with like-minded entrepreneurs from 4 countries
  • You would like to get feedback from top-tier mentors (see below names)

The Young Entrepreneurs Programme, the flagship pre-accelerator of UK based educational charity Reload Greece, runs across leading universities and co-working spaces in the UK, Netherlands, Greece and Cyprus. The programme aims to enable youth (Final year, Masters & PhD students and Researchers) and young professionals to develop business ideas with a positive socio-economic impact on their home counties. RG YEP is particularly keen to meet ideas coming from the MedTech, AgriTech, GreenTech, FinTech, Construction and Tourism sectors. 

The programme runs in 3 phases: 

IGNITE (workshops in each location, where we work on your business idea with tailor-made educational content)

ACCELERATE (15 selected teams gain 7 weeks of 1:1 mentoring with a dedicated mentor per team & masterclasses with leading tech companies on Growth Hacking, IP, startup Finance and more) 

PITCH(entrepreneurs present their startup to judges for the chance to win awards and prizes at the final pitch event in London)
