Everything you thought you knew about marketing is WRONG

With the launch and first taster session of The Startup Social now behind us, it is time to continue our entrepreneurial journey…

After the success of our launch, we have begun the development of a very exciting six-series program that we are calling ‘Startup Series’ which will be held over 12 weeks.

These workshops will allow you to gain the skills required to turn an idea into a viable reality alongside forming the right team and eventually bringing your solution to market.

Show up, form a team and grow a risk-free fictional company with an opportunity to pitch to investors Dragon’s Den-style after 12 weeks.

An industry expert, Bill Shotton, will lead the workshop and act as a mentor PLUS there’s loads of opportunity to network!


6PM: Networking
7PM – 7:30PM: Entrepreneurial journey – Philip Cockayne
7:30PM – 9PM: Startup Series #1: Everything you thought you knew about marketing is WRONG – Bill Shotton

Given that Easter is just around the corner, we have decided to hold the first session after Easter on the 10th April 2018 from 18:00 – 21:00 at the Accelerator (see below).

For anybody who couldn’t make it to our launch, it would be great to see you at our upcoming sessions!

Admission is FREE – register your attendance at Eventbrite.

Hope to see you there!



Our first casual meet up will be next Wednesday 28th March from 7pm – 10pm at Chamber 36 in the city centre for casual conversation and discussion about innovation, startups and anything else that takes our fancy!

Come over, have a drink and let’s get to know each other better and start building this startup community!



“There’s no reason why the future should happen only at Stanford, or in college, or in Silicon Valley” – Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal.

We agree. The future should happen right here in Liverpool.

The future is here – with great advancements in AI, machine learning and the internet of things, medicine and engineering, electric cars and the prospect of humans on Mars in the next decade, the technological singularity is fast approaching – almost as fast as Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster flying in orbit!

If you want to be a part of this future, either as the architect or the builder, or maybe you only want to be a spectator, please come to our very first meet up event!

We will have an opportunity to chat among one another to discuss the future and any great ideas that we may have. It will allow collaboration between individuals of different backgrounds, talents and expertise to thrive and develop.

Whether your background is business, engineering, computing, medicine, art, language, economics, marketing or absolutely anything else, tomorrow’s solutions that go from zero to one require a diverse and collaborative team approach!

We hope that each event will result in the creation of the startups of the future with collaboration forming the basis of a strong startup team.

Let this be our entrepreneurial journey.
