Are we right for you?
There are four things that make us sit up and take notice:
Here’s what we offer
Join our programme and we will invest £100,000 in your business.
We ask for a 30% equity stake for our funding, strategic guidance, operational support and access to our network of experts and resources.
Together we will agree on the most effective way to spend your funding – we do not believe in boilerplates. Here are two examples of recent companies we have partnered with.
The experienced entrepreneur at the helm here had already created a popular B2B business with a growing reputation.
The challenge was to scale rapidly while maintaining service levels by developing online systems, expand market reach and hiring an assistant to enable the founder to focus on strategy.
Company B had devised a new B2B product that had spun out of an established business. Their challenge was to develop the technology that could automate what was previously done manually.
Once that was complete, they invested heavily in marketing to grow their revenue so that they could invest their profits in scaling up the team.
