We are really looking forward to starting the programme on March 20th at Brighton Eagle Lab

There is a really inspiring and creative schedule for the 8 companies who made it onto Barclays Eagle Lab Flight. Each week there is a strong full day on business development and we have put together the speakers and presenters who are true specialists in their fields. Alongside this, our Creative speakers will be sharing their wisdom, thoughts and experience with all the participants. We have assembled an international field of experts with presenters from Australia, New Zealand and the USA joining us. Barclays will also be running a bespoke series of sessions, again drawing on their wealth of talent and skill to share across the whole 12 weeks. We will also be matchmaking our companies with their own specialist mentor for the duration as part of the first week.

The 8 successful businesses who will be joining us are...
 

Good Company Wealth

We are looking forward to the take off, and journey together towards our shared new destinations 

The Eagle Lab Flight Programme will be an enriching and creative learning journey for all of us - and we are looking forward to sharing our ideas and thoughts with you as we are in the air for over the next 3 months 

Meet the Eagle Lab Flight businesses
 

Who is it for?

The programme will offer up to 8 investments to product led, creative tech and digital companies.

We are looking for a broad spectrum of business and products that demonstrate the cross sector impact of creativity; ideas that seek to make a global difference. We’re specifically keen to attract businesses which focus on cross sector innovation – where creative technology and digital is being applied to other sectors. This includes B2B, as well as other sectors which may not be seen as traditionally digital – such as healthcare or tourism. We’re looking for strong digital based ideas – including app, mobile, data, gamification, Internet of things, VR, AR and 3D modelling.

The programme will focus on creative thinking, participation and cross collaborative working. By the end of the programme, we  want the participating companies to have a clearly defined, innovative and marketable service or proposition with the potential to scale up.

This high level access to Creative Entrepreneurs and Thought Leaders will provide a wealth of resources and inspiration in the form of a growing archive of FLIGHT Talks and presentations. 

The Investment

All participants will receive up to £25k of investment at the start of the programme. This is offered in two ways: either as an unsecured, interest-free convertible loan, or as an equity investment. The fees for participating on the programme will be deducted from the investment.

The programme culminates in a pitch to investors, giving you the opportunity to potentially secure additional investment from experienced Business Angels and up to £50k follow-on funding from Creative England. This is discretionary, and will be awarded on the strength of the pitch to investors during the programme’s final event.

Meet our Creative Advisers

We will draw from our pool of Creative Advisers to provide the best suited talks
and mentorships for you and your company as part of the Flight programme.
