We have teamed up with Barclays Eagle Labs to create and deliver the Barclays Eagle Lab - Flight accelerator – Where Creativity Meets Technology.
The Barclays Eagle Lab - Flight mentoring programme will bring in thought leaders and visionary creative practitioners to share their expertise, experience and ideas with you. This is a priceless opportunity to help take your business to the next level.
It also offers creative and tech high growth small businesses the chance to secure up to £25k of investment, backed up with a 3-month residency in Brighton, where you will receive intensive support from a wide range of coaches, mentors and inspirational guest speakers.
Flight is looking for
- High growth, early stage creative and digital companies
- Commercial businesses with fast growth ambitions within their market or industry, which can be clearly measured and tracked
- Companies who can demonstrate a clear market and defined business opportunity
- Companies who by the end of the programme will be ready for further investment, to “scale up”
Flight will accept 8 participants in total. Companies ideally should have two or more active partners with a stake in the business (although the partnership does not have to be equal). Sole founder/trader businesses are not eligible.
If you are selected on the programme, your company will receive up to £25k of investment and business support over a 3 month period. The programme culminates in a pitch to investors, giving you the opportunity to potentially secure additional investment from experienced Business Angels and up to £50k follow-on funding from Creative England.
Applications closed on the 13th January. Successful companies will be notified by January 21st and invited to attend one of the pitch days on February 2nd and 3rd in Brighton. The programme will then commence on March 20th and run until June 9th 2017.
