Business Networking Event at Rainmaking Loft

Hello! Network with London's best startups at this free event. Join your peers across industries including technology, manufacturing, design, fashion and more.

Hosted at the Rainmaking Loft, a co-working space for startups, this meetup group prides itself on being very friendly and open to all attendees.

Whether you run a business, have just started, still with an idea, or fishing, come along and meet some fantastic people. Always a sell-out, London Startups has been going for three years and members are the most welcoming in London.

If you're looking for a team to join or want new members, come along with business cards and hand them out to everyone.

This is our 3rd Anniversary Meetup :) and this week, we surpassed 2,000 members to become one of the biggest startup networking groups in the UK. Thank you for supporting it! 

P.s. Have you tried Uber yet, the new taxi app? I gave it a go for the first time this week, quite excellent! A 35 minute journey cost £17 in a Toyota Prius. Why not take a ride to this meetup. Sign up with this code, 'qyj08', and get £10 off your first ride.

    The meeting was excellent, well organised in a very good location. The supervision of the event was well controlled by being introduced to the people you needed to meet.
    It was good, from my aged point of view, to feel so much energy in the room.

      I did try your Coffee sample whilst watching one of the Tennis finals on Saturday tasted great! Tks to all involved with the event..154 attendees is pushing it a bit but it was a worthwhile gathering.
