Funds between £100,000 and £150,000 will be made available to innovative entrepreneurs.
Last week, the Evening Standard launched its Spirit of London campaign to support the capital’s innovation and creativity, with the aim of finding the next Uber or Slack. In total, the two organisations hope to support at least ten projects.
Together with venture capital firm Triple Point, it has launched the Kickstart Fund, which will offer funding between £100,000 and £150,000 to the best tech ideas.
It is quick and easy to apply to the fund by uploading your pitch deck here. The Triple Point experience team will then assess your application.
Triple Point’s Daniel Cardenas-Clark said: “The world is now a different place than it was before the lockdown and the way we used to do almost everything has changed. This change has brought with it an array of opportunities for innovative start-ups and creative entrepreneurs. Triple Point are delighted to have partnered with the Evening Standard to fund the next generation of talented founders during this difficult time”.
And finally, some words of wisdom from serial start-up guru Steve Blank: “Start-ups don’t fail because they lack a product; they fail because they lack customers.”
