  • At a discounted cost for Members, our ever growing eLearning library helps your start-up teams (and if Corporate, your employees) develop in specific areas, to help them succeed.

BIZKIT CLUB

We have created a secure online ‘Club’ for entrepreneurs who have ideas that have been identified as having ‘good potential’ through the BizKit platform to meet specialist investors in start-up businesses.

The entrepreneurs are available to meet with interested parties to gain more information to help them decide how and whether to move forward or not.

We also want to showcase our BizKit Challenge intrepreneurial ideas as they come forward with our corporate members.

We will be providing various added-value services such as information and statistics on budding entre and intrepreneurs, online training ‘bytes’ that are developed through the experiences of our users, and general blogs and features from entrepreneurial and intrepreneurial communities.

The BizTik upgrade provides:

  • Full bank level credit analytics
  • 'What if...' scenarios
  • Drill down accounts flexibility
  • Additional years' forecasting options
  • Private online meetings with the entrepreneurs

OUR MEMBERS

There are two classes of member; Corporate and Private Members

Benefits are tailored to each Membership group, based on either funding or investment in great new ideas, and/or benefiting internally from our 'BizKit Challenge'. We work with your intrepreneurial employees to enable them to compete individually or in teams to think up and model business ideas to help grow your current bottom line!

OUR START-UP FUND

The Foundation funds its activities through BizTik upgrade sponsorships, BizKit Challenge licences, and members' voluntary donations.

We would like to think that our BizKit Club members would be generous in making donations in line with the quality of their investments they might make in the business ideas that we deliver to the Club's 'Launch Pad'. Any such donations will be credited to The Brand Foundation Start-up Fund (the fund will be audited and available for members to peruse), which will form the final option for those ideas that have neither sponsorship nor funding from the members, but have passed muster through the BizTik upgrade. They could be first movers or in sectors that need a big shake-up with large established competition – areas where some investors understandably don’t have an appetite. We will then review them and decide whether they should be funded or not, through the Start-Up Fund.

OUR 'LAUNCH PAD' RULES

Any budding entrepreneur working through BizKit with a sponsor attached, will not be available for access to the Launch Pad, unless their sponsors decide not to complete on the proposed funding. In that situation, they will be eligible for a Launch Pad 'pitch' and to meet other Club members online.

All business ideas that have been unable to secure sponsorship through the available channels will stay on the Launch Pad for two months, whereupon they will be reviewed for seed or full funding via our Start-up Fund.
