Come and join one of our events - we look forward to seeing you there 

Example of a recent event.


  • SLP is a global programme for early stage startup founders

  • The London team ("chapter") accepts 20 founders each year

  • From Oct 2020, 18 classes are run over 6 months with 0% equity taken

  • The focus is on Founders and not just their companies

  • All classes are peer led to accelerate Founder development

  • This year, due to COVID-19, we will plan for remote classes but where possible will meet in person in London.


We are SLP UK but we share common values with all sister SLP locations. By joining SLP you become a member of the global support network.

"The biggest benefit from the programme was the connections made with other founders. From the founders, I have made connections with potential investors, mentors and other programmes that have positively impacted me and my business."

"It gives you the chance to share the challenges you're facing with people who can relate to your situation as well as following a structured learning programme covering all aspects from hiring to funding and everything in between. If you're on the fence about whether to apply don't be – just do it!"

"It was great to be part of a community that is both ahead and behind you on their startup journeys – I've never experienced that before and was a massive highlight. It was great to see everyone grow, including myself. I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about it."
