We get excited receiving feedback like this – it’s what gets us up in the morning. Hear from some more of the ventures that we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years, from ethical jewellers to health apps that use AI, and social enterprises that support sustainable brands.
We’ve worked with many inspiring ventures over the years that have gone on to grow and make significant impact. We keep in touch with them, and are proud to have played a part in their impact journey. Check out a selection of our alumni.
Carrying amazing breadth and depth of industry experience, our mentors play a hugely important role in our ventures’ journeys – advising, connecting and encouraging. Read more about our mentors or get in touch if you’d like to join our team.
We’re grateful to a number of organisations who partner with us, to provide us with a range of support from speakers at pitch days and events, to funding and resources. And we’re always looking to connect and collaborate with other organisations with whom we can align.
