UK-registered, limited liability tech’ companies at the pre-seed stage can now apply for help with accelerator funding and business mentoring on www.startupgiants.com/apply
Over 500 people applied for funding in the Company’s last accelerator round. Initial applications are made by completing a 42-step questionnaire on the online site to determine the nature of the concept, the team behind it and the extent of knowledge in the niche in which it purports to serve.
Successful applicants at that stage will then have an interview with Startup Giant’s director and founder, Jeremy Buckler, after which his team will decide whether they qualify to attend the Company’s intensive, six-week entrepreneurship and marketing course, for which there are only fifteen places.
The course is designed to improve the business and revenue model, and determine methods of marketing. Afterwards, each qualifying applicant then pitches their business to the Independent Investor Advisory Panel. If successful, the applicants can receive allocations of up to £100,000 conditional funding, which is released upon timely achievement of pre-determined milestones.
The Company has been designed to invest in pre-seed/concept stage companies with the aim of growing them to ‘feed’ the VC market’s appetite for later-stage investment opportunities.
Jeremy Buckler, Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“Startup Giants’ aim is to crystallise value by supplying viable investment opportunities to the VC marketplace. This occurs in stages and this new Accelerator Round is the first since the Company’s being admitted to the NEX Exchange Growth Market. It’s an encouraging and positive start to the New Year. The UK is a powerhouse of ideas and our team and our investors are looking forward to learning about the new companies, some of which may come under our wing to help forge the future of the burgeoning digital and tech’ industry.“
