The Startup & Career Change Accelerators

Have you always done what you ‘should’ do?…

Fallen into something that isn’t really you?…

Feel like a small cog in a big machine?

Escape the City was created to solve this problem. The problem of interesting, ambitious and intelligent people being stuck in careers that lack the meaning and excitement they need.

Sitting alone with a laptop trying to figure out what to do with your life can feel hopeless, so we created 12-week long Accelerator programmes and built a community of 1,000+ awesome people doing something different to make the process a lot more fun and a lot less daunting.

If you want to make an exciting career change or you want to build a business of your own – you may be who we’re looking for…
