How can I apply to present my startup?
Startups* (for our definition of startups please click on the link and watch Steve Blank's YouTube interview) They can be in the BtoB space, SaaS companies, focusing on these three sectors: food, fashion, or wine - or they can be BtoC, as in fashion e-commerce or food marketplaces. We are also looking for startups that have truly groundbreaking technologies in these sectors.
What kind of personality types are we looking for in the entrepreneurs who apply?
A few things they all have in common. They must be ambitious, global minded entrepreneurs, with scalable business models, that have potential for revenues above and beyond multimillion pounds. Please apply to speak only if your startup fits this model. We are not focusing on SMEs at this time, or niche local/brands that cannot be exported to other cultures.
