Tell us about your bright idea. If we love it, we’ll arrange a meeting to hear more. It’s a chance for both teams to see if we could work together profitably.

If we decide to go ahead with your application, we’ll offer you a date to pitch to our investors.

THE PITCH
Before the pitch, our team will work with you to hone your presentation and ensure you have the best chance of success.

On the pitch day, you’ll have 10 minutes to present your idea. There will be a further 20 minutes for investors to ask you questions.

If the investors decide to make you an offer, our gatekeeper will contact you on the day of the pitch. She’ll give a verbal outline of the terms and conditions, which are non-negotiable.

NEXT STEPS
We aim to agree a deal within a month of offer. Once that’s done, we’ll nurture and support your business to the next level of investment – ideally within 6 to 9 months.

Our aim is to inject the funds into your business as quickly as possible. Naturally we’ll expect regular, thorough reports of your progress.

PRACTICAL SUPPORT
Through the Strathclyde University Incubator, you can benefit from services such as:

• office space
• business planning
• financial projections
• marketing strategy
• administrative support
• IP advice.

Your business will also join Gabriel’s Accelerator programme and adopt our virtual office set-up. We’ll handle your book-keeping too.

Together, this support will ensure the company stays focused on the agreed benchmarks – adding value to the business at the next stage of investment.
