A Dynamic Business-Growth Programme
Advance is a dynamic accelerator programme of investment and support, with a four-month renewal window, for developing businesses with the potential for significant growth. Advance offers access to angel investors with potential for co-investment as well as consultant-led support to prepare for future Series A fund-raising.
You’ll be a developing business with a tested Minimum Viable Proposition (MVP) looking to deploy your solution within a proactive city or rural environment. You’ll have a team and an investor presentation with a clear business opportunity. You will most likely have raised pre-seed capital through investment or innovation grant funding, and now need up to £1,500,000 of capital investment over the next 12 months. And of course, your proposition will have circular economy focus and potential impact on transportation, mobility and energy usage.
Through the Advance programme we’ll provide support to your business in the following ways.
- Access to our external and internal angel investor network with the potential for co-investment of up to £200,000.
- Sector specific mentors across the following fields of expertise – energy, transport, circular economy, logistics and much more.
- Business growth and support to further develop your route to market strategy.
- Advice and guidance in presentation and business planning from our investor network
In short, Advance can help accelerate and scale your business, ready for Series A investment and beyond.
