Applications close this week for ZINC’s sixth Venture Builder

The first application round for ZINC’s sixth Venture Builder focused on transforming people’s financial resilience closes on November 17th!

Starting in April 2023, 70 ambitious and passionate Founders will join ZINC’s next Venture Builder with the mission to transform people’s financial resilience and turn uncertainty into opportunity.

They are searching for exceptional individuals who want to create opportunities for those born in the 70s and 80s to make more money, invest smartly in their future and cope better with financial shocks. The commercial ventures they will build on the Venture Builder will be impact-driven and committed to tackling these issues at scale.

Successful Founders can receive up to £250k in investment and a 12-month tailored programme of support alongside mission-driven experts – submit your application before November 17th to become part of an ambitious and passionate cohort.

In our climate of economic insecurity, financial support is often a pressing concern, especially for those looking to start their own business. This is why they have mitigated many of the struggles through what they offer on the Venture Builder, including:

  • A £12,000 stipend, paid directly to you for the first 6 months as you find your co-Founder and land on the problem you want to solve
  • Access to direct initial investment of £80,000 after the first 6 months to provide you with a further runway to keep building and £125,000 follow-on investment after 12 months
  • Access to an extensive network of experts, mentors and investors, working to help you succeed
  • Support from an expert R&D team to help you build everything from your pilot to grant funding applications

If you are passionate about empowering people to transform their financial resilience, apply before November 17th to be in our first round of offers: https://hubs.la/Q01rql8h0
