MANAGED FRAMEWORKS FOR UNIVERSITY SPIN-OUTS

Although Students may have limited entrepreneurial experience it does not mean the doors to forming a credible business with secured financial backing are closed to them. We work with Students to help them become problem solvers and form concepts which businesses can be built around; skills, knowledge, industry credibility, legal & tax advice, board members and finance naturally form around a good business idea and we find those ideas and nurture them through to successful investment and growth..

Our managed frameworks provide thorough vetting of business plans and a pre-engaged route to investors which is one of the key reasons we maintain a 7/10 investment success rate.

OUR MISSION

" Automation in degree-mandatory careers is rising sharply and all Students entering their career space will need skills which cannot be automated in order to survive and certainly if they want to progress. In most cases this will mean developing lateral thinking and strategic problem solving skills which when deployed result in an operational or commercial gain for their future employer. These skills are the necessary building-blocks for entrepreneurship and we want to support more Students and their Universities in developing business concepts into successfully funded Spin-Out enterprise."
