Startup Club first launched back in August 2017, since then, we have helped dozens of aspiring entrepreneurs to find out the basics of business and explore their ideas through a series of informative and engaging workshops. Our cohorts have also been able to tap into the knowledge of experts in a diverse range of fields, as well as enjoy the support offered by a group of like-minded individuals.
