"Thank you for launching the programme; it has been really useful and eye-opening. Running a business I have been focused on how to grow the business and not enough time on the numbers which show exactly where to focus. The programme is instrumental for small business owners in understanding what you need to grow and find the right investment model that matches your business." ​ Marie Swarbreck Founder of FLEXImums

"The Get Ready for Funding programme is unlike any incubator I have experienced. It is a highly immersive, interactive experience for founders and helps them grasp the workings of the funding world through candid conversations with investors, founders, legal experts and others. It is the perfect programme for first time founders who have launched a service / product and are now looking to scale. Unlike a lot of other programmes, it stays away from just theory, in fact, it focuses on real business issues such as knowing when to raise money, how to do it well and the financial / legal frameworks to scale a company sustainably. Not to mention the individualised focus and attention given to each participant by Nicole and team which makes it a truly valuable experience. Highly recommended!"
