Partners

    The programs that we run our funded by our partners, each of them sponsors a sector that we make investments in.

    We’re here to put our partners to work for your startup. Instead of battling against the incumbents we work with them to help you go faster. Leveraging their assets to give your startup a unique edge.

    That means their distribution, data, market insights, relationships, credibility and capital are all up for grabs. They could also be your first customer, give you the feedback that will help you scale. Their investment in us means there’s no better place to make it happen.

    What do our partners get from this, beyond the investments in brilliant early stage startups through us? They want to work with the best entrepreneurs in their sector and know that doing this can bring about cultural transformation for them. They also can move forward rapidly with opportunities they see in the market through our two programs.
