There are many schemes at the moment in place to incubate growing businesses and startups, and rightly so – according to the UKBI, on average 97% of businesses working with an incubator last more than three years.
The UK is fertile ground for this growth and acceleration, with access to a landscape of venture capitalists and private equity second only to the US in size, investing over £600m into early stage tech companies. Many of these schemes provide the funding and finance that fledgling businesses need to thrive, but not necessarily the sector-specific insight – which is vital to help participating young entrepreneurs develop solutions which suit a specific niche, or locate and fill a gap in an existing market."
