The four-month Programme is tailor-made for the electric vehicle battery sector and will help up to 25 selected SMEs prepare to present and connect to potential investors.

Following an application process, the Programme starts with a bootcamp. At the end of the bootcamp, you’ll have developed an investor pitch, finessed your proposition and you’ll have a defendable understanding of your finances and future plans.

The Programme culminates in a showcase event where the cohort will pitch to an audience of investors.

A maximum of 25 companies can take part in the Programme and we are looking for SMEs working in the electric vehicle battery sector that are at a demonstrator stage of development.

This Launch event will give you the opportunity to understand more about the Programme, the steps to successfully raise investment, and information on how to apply. The session will include:

  • An overview of the programme
  • An investor panel with insights on how to raise funds
  • Information on how to apply & next steps
