Urbano Network Membership

Urbano has been bringing together company founders, entrepreneurs, directors and other professionals of SMEs and PLCs across all sectors to connect, engage, learn, share, and develop mutual business opportunities from our beginnings in Shoreditch in the early 2000's.

Urbano is a membership community. Most companies join Urbano after having attended at least one event where you can chat with us about how we deliver value to our diverse members. Non-member companies can send their representatives to a maximum of two events. This rule applies across any company and precludes those companies which were previously members from sending their representatives to our events as non-members.

For those who have attended events, you will have seen our approach to networking the kind of companies we are proud to call members and the services we offer. You can view and show our membership options and fees to whoever signs off on your memberships and partnerships here: Urbano Membership - Benefits - Options

Membership is open to any size of company - see options below.

** PLEASE NOTE: Applications to join Urbano and any queries related to that membership must come the company's business owner, MD, director or partner (or equivalent). As you will have noted at our events, most of our events are exclusively for this level of company representative.

To apply to join Urbano, a director should email Mark with your preferred status. We usually need 24 hours to activate memberships on receipt of application.

Urbano is a lean, crowd-funded, membership organisation that for twenty years has been helping companies find opportunities through conversations and connections. We reserve to always have the final say on event attendees and memberships. Every decision we make is based on what is best for Urbano and our community.

Urbano has a membership option to suit every business, regardless of status, size and budget. Fees quoted are ex VAT.
