How can I financially support the Business Incubator Programme?
If you are interested in supporting this programme and becoming one of its Financial Champion supporters, then you’ll need to complete this expression of interest form.
What does it mean to be a Champion in the programme?
To be an early investor, you must donate a minimum of £250 to our programme. (If you wish to donate a lesser amount, you still can, you just won’t formally be an early investor).
You will be donating money towards the costs of running the programme. In return for that donation, you will be allocated a secure invitation to the final Presentation Day of the programme, which is when all the businesses on the programme will present their business plans to the audience and seek formal investment on specified terms.
As an early investor, you will have a first prior option (before other investors) to formally buy equity in any of the businesses that present on the day. You will also receive better rates than other investors that attend (at a level to be confirmed depending on the specific valuation of the business you invest in).
Please complete the form to notify us of your wish to become an early investor and we’ll be in contact with you to give you further details.
We need to raise £10,000 to fund this programme.
If you aren’t able to be a Champion of the programme, but you still want to support, you can still make a donation to the programme here .
All donations are very gratefully received and we will definitely acknowledge your support.
