You’ve got the idea. We’ve got the expertise.With two world-leading business support programmes, we will transform you into an Entrepreneur capable of scaling your company in the UK.
We are a progressive venture builder.
Think of us as your longterm business partner, your reliable source of information, inspiration and solutions to work alongside you to grow your idea into a viable business over the term of your visa.
You'll be amongst the highest level of Entrepreneurs who've passed through our process and been endorsed and approved by the British Home Office to scale your business in the UK.
Are you right for us?
If you’re looking for a quick means of funding and no contact or business advice then Startup Giants isn’t right for you, and you’re not right for us.
If you’re keen to be proactive and grow a viable business keep reading because our process not only brings you to the UK, it gives your business the potential to thrive.
Every Entrepreneur entering the UK with Startup Giants follows our four week Workplace Sessions.
This involves deep strategy sessions into what your business idea needs to grow and the expertise that you need to ensure that it does. You’ll exit the Workplace Sessions equipped with a road map of milestones to reach and a strategy to put your business journey in place.
Business Support Programme
Our Business Support programme has everything you need to support your business venture as you enter the UK as an Entrepreneur.
When you land in the UK you will enter our Workplace Sessions, a four week deep dive into strategy and goal setting. From that point on you will have a clear road map to grow your business.
We can prepare and assist your application process for patents, grants and R&D tax credits. After you’ve scaled your business we then position you for funding rounds.
There’s a wealth of opportunity available if you’re ready to work hard and seize it. Read more in our brochure.
Venture Builder Programme
Our Venture Builder programme is available to all single founders that have the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and market awareness to run their own business, but require a co-founder team that can deliver on the concept and business plan.
Startup Giants becomes a long-term equity partner and cofounder and provisioning the resources required over multiple phases of growth.
In addition to getting a team that can execute on strategy and delivery, investors also appreciate this model because our expertise and refined process accelerates ventures whilst also de-risking them to some extent, compared to a founder without an existing or trusted team in place.
If your idea is original and we offer you a visa, here’s the process that awaits you
Visa application process
Application for visa form submitted, interviews and concept testing.
Meeting with Jeb Buckler, CEO and Founder of Startup Giants. If successful you will receive a formal offer of approval for your visa.
Our team will guide you through the process, often three months long to obtain your visa and enter the UK.
You will enrol on the exclusive Startup Giants app where your journey to becoming an Entrepreneur in the UK begins …
Once in the UK …
Whilst you enter the UK and get settled, work can begin immediately on bringing your concept to life. Every week for four weeks you will attend a Workplace Session which is a deep dive into your business.
Not only does the Startup Giants team ensure that they are up-to-date with your business concept and dreams, you will be guided on how to break down your journey into manageable goals to meet important milestones during your first year.
Over the course of four weeks we will challenge you to research your marketplace, competitors and product development, resulting in your all-important strategy being created. Then we hand it over to you, to lead your business and put the plan into action …
We provide regular check-ins for support and connecting you with experts should you be in need of further advice.
Our quarterly meetups will be beneficial to you to meet fellow Entrepreneurs that you may have talked to via the Raising Giants app.
Patents and Grants
During your regular check-ins with the team, we will help you to assess whether or not you qualify to apply for patent and grant to both protect your business idea and be granted funding for it.
This can be a major boost for your business and whilst the capital can be put to good development or marketing use, the exposure created if successful is a powerful win to have on your record.
Our in-house team will assist in preparing you and your presentation to give you the best chance for success.
What are the general lead times for a funding journey? What are the documents that need to be delivered as part of a funding round? These are the biggest and most common questions we are asked by our Entrepreneurs and form the basis of stage three of our support programmes.
Navigating fundraising in the UK is far easier when you have a team of experts on your side to help coach you and prepare your business to give it the best chance of success.
Having done an IPO ourselves, we’re experienced from the core team to our trusted advisors in negotiating every kind of investment on offer. It’s never a quick process, however, if handled correctly, fundraising can be a business-changing moment in your journey as an Entrepreneur.
We are Home Office accredited, you can also find us on the Aquis Dual listed stock exchange.
Our own formulated initiation process means that we can evaluate thousands of applications every year. Due diligence to provide even fifty Entrepreneurs with a visa, takes months.
Our team of experts source Entrepreneurs with scalable, innovative and viable ideas; ideas that deserve to scale on UK soil. We bring the Entrepreneurs to the UK for nurturing and mentoring within one of our business support and growth programmes.
Together our aim is to create Entrepreneurs capable of achieving investment, patents and grants on their own terms.
