The Difference Engine - Early Stage Funding

The Difference Engine is a full time 16 week acceleration programme which combines investment capital of £20,000 (for 8% of the business) with mentoring, support and office accommodation with various other services provided by our partners.

At the conclusion of the programme the businesses will be expected to be investor ready, and will have to present their businesses and products to a group of venture capitalists and angel investors at a demo day.  The first programme will commence in February 2010 and will be run from Boho One located in Middlesbrough.

The Difference Engine is comparable to Y Combinator (Silicon Valley), TechStars (Boulder, Colorado & Boston, Massachusetts) and Seedcamp (London). Outside of London, this will be the first major acceleration programme to be set up in Europe, and clearly demonstrates our ambition to help aspiring digital entrepreneurs.

SeedFund - Going Live Soon, but what is it ?

SeedFund 


Sun Startup Essentials, who are supporters of SeedFund and are making
the offer to Web Mission 08 companies to have an opportunity to be the first onboard the Seedfund platform, on its launch.

So what is Seedfund ?

 

SeedFund is a platform (launching in mid-May) connecting entrepreneurs, raising between £50k - £1m, with early stage private investors & VCs. Entrepreneurs create a Project profile and have a professionally filmed HD pitch video created and uploaded into their SeedFund Project Account.
Investors create an Investment profile, the service then automatically identifies matching Projects as they are added and notifies them via email. They can then sign into their private Account and review the Project profiles, watch the pitch videos and get in touch directly with the Entrepreneurs directly as appropriate

SeedFund charges both investors and entrepreneurs to use the platform. This ensures a level of quality and commitment and provides a simple but important way to validate the identity of the individuals using the service

So tune in now,  and also be aware, if you are a  Startup Essential  member, you are entitled to a discount, watch out for the email shortly.
