If your application to join the programme has been approved, you’ll have a diagnostic session with one of our investment advisors to review your business and initial investment proposition and to understand your business needs. If you decide to join the programme, you’ll then be able to attend the weekly Masterclass sessions listed below. There’ll also be additional workshops (online and face to face) which will cover soft skills such as effective communication, and provide pitching practice to help you refine and develop your offer. You’ll be supported throughout by a key investment advisor, who will also facilitate bespoke support from experts and specialists to help you achieve your objectives and get the most out of the programme. Participants will also have access to support from the national Create Growth Programme and networks, including pitch events, investor networking and investment incentives.
