About

Did you know that London businesses have the lowest three-year survival rates in the UK? High entrepreneurial competition, higher living costs and higher wages all contribute to an SME-mortality rate of 13%.

As an emerging technological sector, viable immersive tech businesses are faring better than others - but how do you guarantee you can afford the costs of developing a business?

Securing the funds to thrive continues to be a challenge for 46% of tech founders, as major lending banks are turning their backs on smaller-sized ventures. This means that the most common source of funding for British tech SMEs are bank overdrafts and credit cards.

This bootcamp will provide you with tools to safeguard your business (and your credit rating) against the economic factors of failure.

Benefits

By the end of the two days, you will:

  • Understand the funding cycle and your business' stage within it;
  • Have a deeper awareness of different funding and investment opportunities for your business;
  • Build your knowledge of trends in the tech-funding landscape;
  • Be able to maximise opportunities through your business models;
  • Know how and where to find the right investor for your business;
  • Know how to answer the questions investors will ask;
  • Have a refined value proposition, enabling you to articulate it to potential investors;
  • Know about other opportunities to further your business without sacrificing IP or Equity.

Benefits to your business:

You'll have a comprehensive knowledge of what you should do to support the economic development of your business.

You'll be able to safeguard your business against high interest rates or punitive overdraft fees.

You'll leave up-skilled and ready to rapidly take your business to the next level - tapping into the £6.3 billion of funding available for UK tech startups.

You'll become a member of our ACE IT Alumni Group and part of a strong, diverse peer-support network. You'll also gain the opportunity to collaborate with the ACE IT team to create new-to-market products or services.
