We provide an unrivalled ecosystem and expertise to support our founders through our startup-generator program run out of London. With mentors and door openers in the entire region, we support founders to build successful startups in Europe.
Equal access to funding and opportunities is at the core of what we do. We strive to bring together founders from diverse backgrounds, gender and ethnicities to create the strongest co-founding teams possible.This is just the start of our journey and we are working on continuously improving our numbers.
The first phase of the program runs for about 2 months, whilst the second phase is 4 months.
Selected founders get a stipend of £2,500 per month the first two months. We invest £120,000 for a 10% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee.
For all companies we invest in, £40,000 is used to cover the program fees so you get £80,000 in the bank to start building the foundations of a great business.

According to Forbes, around 90% of startups fail. We don’t know about you, but that sounds like a large proportion of unsuccessful business ventures to us. We sat down with Antoine Poirson, one of our partners at our London office, to discuss his thoughts on becoming an entrepreneur in today’s globally competitive market.
