When? 17th February – 7th March 2014
Where? Collective Hub, Camden
Who? Up to 8 businesses will be accepted on to the programme.
Our three week programme has been designed specifically for creative businesses. Applicants should have a clear business idea with drive to take it forward. This is not for someone who is unsure about their idea and looking to kill time!
Better business models give you freedom.
The intensive course will help you understand how different business ideas and business models fit together, and how some hold us back while others free us to do more creative work. We’ll help you find a way to work where you’re not chasing small customers and payments, and instead doing new, interesting work on terms you control. And to give you a boost, you’ll be ready to make a professional pitch to our board of expert business leaders for a loan of between 5k – 10k.
Practical know-how from founders who’ve been there.
We’re really proud of our network which ranges from international tech connoisseurs to high end creative business owners. Through a mix of workshops, specialist talks and mentoring, these people will share their know-how and give you fast connections to the people who can give you a leg-up and help you grow fast.
This programme is designed to plug into your existing work.
It’ll be an intensive few weeks, but you’ll have time for your day-to-day work and everything we do will move your business forward.
Our support does not stop there. Successful applicants will automatically become Collective Members, with free access to our hubs and ongoing start-up support from our dedicated team.
Loans are interest free for up to 2 years. Terms of the loan will be available upon application. Entrance into this programme will not automatically qualify participants for a loan. The result is entirely dependent on the investment outcomes of the loan including the consideration of payback periods.
We want you to make a short video…..
• Your elevator pitch
• Your business experience to date including any relevant academic courses
• Why you’re looking for a loan
Keep it to 3 mins max!
DON’T WORRY ABOUT PRODUCTION QUALITY – we want the content not a post produced gem of a film.
