Entrepreneur First: Build Your Startup

Entrepreneur First is a talent investor that works with ambitious individuals to help them find a co-founder, develop an idea and start their own business.

Applicants accepted onto the Entrepreneur First programme initially receive support to identify a co-founder, and develop and refine their business idea.

If a participant finds a co-founder, they will be able to receive a pre-seed investment of £80,000 in exchange for 10% of the company. Experienced advisers and entrepreneurs will also provide advice on product, customers and investment.

Participants also have the opportunity to pitch to early-stage investors and raise investment on more favourable terms so they can continue to grow and scale their business.
