ASK4 is delighted to announce a three year partnership commitment to The Class of 2020 to support the innovations and best practices shaping the future of student living in Europe.

The partnership will see ASK4 returning as the official supplier for The Class Conference and sponsor for many of the regional sessions set to take place around Europe for the next three years.

The partnership will also power the continuation of The Class of 2020's Start-Up Programme to provide a platform and an extra push for start-ups who are revolutionising student living. Each month between April and September the programme will recognise a start-up developing a product or service that enhances student life, the future of learning, and the transition to a working career.

Four start-ups will then be shortlisted to pitch their inventions at The Class Conference in Milan in front of a distinguished panel of judges and an international audience of investors. The winner of this programme will receive exposure amongst The Class of 2020 audience, a new Macbook Pro and exclusive mentoring sessions with ASK4 founder and CEO Jonathan Burrows.

Speaking of the programme, Jonathan commented:

“I founded ASK4 when I was 18 years old. I knew it was either going to be a success or I would have a great story to tell in job interviews. ASK4 is a successful business and we are delighted to be sponsoring The Class of 2020’s Start Up Programme so we can give other young entrepreneurs and big thinkers opportunities and encouragement as they seek to realise their potential.”

The Class of 2020 Director, Jorick Beijer, added:

"The Start Up Programme fully aligns with our quest to discover the future of living, working and learning in Europe. I see entrepreneurship at the very core of great cities, so for me it’s obvious that we support, celebrate and push pioneers that go beyond barriers. ASK4 is an example of how great ideas flourish, and scale across Europe. We are excited by their commitment to new generations of bright minds, and The Class of 2020’s Start Up Programme."

Speaking of the partnership, ASK4 Commercial Director, Jon Thornhill commented:

“The Class of 2020 has been a vital partner for us in recent years as our European operations have continued to expand. By committing to support The Class for the next three years we are also committing to support the continued innovation in and improvement of the student accommodation sector throughout Europe.”

The 2018 Class Conference will take place in Milan on 14-15 November 2018 - book your place here.
