Press Release 13th June 2008
Connect London Ltd has started to deliver services under the Connect model. Connect assists technology and high growth potential businesses by connecting them to Mentors, training, academic support, funding, business service suppliers and professional firms as well as a network of businesses and women with similar aspirations.
Connect London is inspired by Connect San Diego which was identified by Lord Sainsbury as a best practice example that should be introduced throughout the UK. Connect London can be regarded as an Incubator Without Walls (IWW) as it has no physical accommodation, but plans to work closely with physical incubators in London.
Connect London will deliver its support through the Springboard programme which is now being followed at over 20 Connects’ around the World. An important component of the support package is access to funding and Connect Business Champions who are members of the trade association British Business Angels (BBAA). Connect London has been granted a licence by Connect on the Net Scotland and is a member of Global Connect.
