How We Can Help
Each year C4DI helps a small, focussed, selection of fast-track high-growth startups through a process that develops robust and globally-connected businesses.
We don't run a formalised accelerator or a standard structured approach to incubating startups, as we tailor our approach to each opportunity based on the skills and resources needed to help accelerate the growth of that business.
If appropriate, we have access to a network of funds and investors that we can we can help our startups we're incubating connect with.
We have a range of services to help early stage businesses from business planning support and strategy, through to events specifically focussed on scaling, technical advice, presentation skills and building a team. Our programmes and events are designed to minimise the amount of time you spend as a startup and to get you on the path to be a scaling as quickly and appropriately as possible.
Starting in 2019 we are delighted to be partnering with Barclays to help support high growth businesses. To be part of this programme, you will either be a ScaleUp Business…
A ‘ScaleUp’ is an enterprise with average annual growth in employees or turnover greater than 20 per cent per annum over a three year period, and with more than 10 employees at the beginning of the period.
…alternatively if you don’t meet the criteria of a ScaleUp business, but are clearly on that trajectory and would still like to be part of the programme, and meet the following criteria, please get in touch:
Have a product with a business model that is both repeatable and scalable and can confidently pitch to investors or customers.
Are in revenue or going through funding rounds
Have engaged with C4DI/Barclays incubation support programmes (workshops, events, 1:1s etc)
If you are a startup looking for incubation, or an investor looking for opportunities, please contact John Connolly : firstname.lastname@example.org
