Propel is aimed at high calibre entrepreneurs who have the passion and energy to succeed on an international stage and if your business has significant growth potential, particularly in international markets, it offers:
• Up to £20,000 financial support
• A series of 12 high quality training workshops
• Individual mentoring support from experienced international entrepreneurs
• Help with drafting an investor ready business plan
• Shared work space
• Support to make overseas market visits
In the past three years 34 local start-up companies on the Propel programme have established new worldwide markets, raised almost £5m investment and funding, and employ over 100 people.
The application call for the next Propel programme, starting in November 2013, is now closed. We will be looking for more entrepreneurs next year to take part in our 2014 programme.
