Expert support to scale your sustainable innovations

I've spent 10 years scaling a worldwide sustainable brand, a marketing agency, and investing in startups. Now, I'm ready to guide you on the best path to scale your venture.

My experience in building Liquiproof into the world's most trusted fashion care brand, working with industry giants like Adidas, Burberry, and IKEA, has provided me with invaluable insights and a deep understanding of sustainable growth strategies.

I have advised, mentored and invested in numerous sustainable startups, helping them navigate the complexities of scaling while staying true to their eco-conscious values.

My approach to growth is rooted in the belief that purpose and profit can coexist. I am passionate about empowering purpose-driven entrepreneurs to achieve sustainable growth, making a positive impact on both their businesses and the world.

How It Works

Have a look at the process to make the most out of our powerful learning platform.

Submitting your application

Start your journey by filling out our online application form. This is your chance to showcase your mission-driven startup and why it's a good fit for our accelerator programme. The application will ask for details about your business, your team, and your goals. Make sure to be thorough and honest, as this is the first step in a potentially transformative experience.

Video call with the team

If your application catches our eye, we'll invite you for a video call. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions and for us to share more about what the programme entails. It's a two-way street—we want to ensure that both parties see the potential for a fruitful partnership.

Welcome to the programme

Congratulations, you've been selected! You'll receive a welcome package that includes all the assets you'll need, along with a calendar of important dates. This is the moment where your startup's growth journey truly begins.

Build for 12 weeks

The first three months are intense but rewarding. You'll dive into our core pillars: Content, Commerce, and Community. Expect hours of in-depth learning, mentorship, and actionable growth strategies. By the end of this phase, you'll have a solid foundation for scaling your business.

Demo Day

This is your moment to shine. Demo Day is where you present your startup's progress and future plans to a panel of investors, mentors, and fellow entrepreneurs. It's not just about securing funding; it's about gaining valuable feedback and potentially forming long-term partnerships.

Optimise and Scale in the final 12 weeks

Armed with the feedback from Demo Day, you'll spend the next three months optimizing and scaling your business. Weekly check-ins ensure you're on the right track, and your bespoke mentor team will be there to guide you every step of the way.

Graduation and Celebration

You did it! The programme concludes with a graduation ceremony where we celebrate your achievements and look ahead to your startup's bright future. But the journey doesn't end here; you'll now be part of our alumni network, offering continued support and opportunities.

FAQs

How long does the Purposeful Profits Programme last?

Our programme is structured as a 12-week cohort, designed to provide participants with in-depth insights, mentorship, and growth opportunities by being held accountable by your peers. However, it's essential to note a couple of unique aspects of our approach:
Commitment to Excellence: The initial 'build phase' is 12 weeks, but graduation isn't guaranteed for everyone at the end of this period. We maintain rigorous standards to ensure the quality and success of our participants.
Extended Access for another 12-weeks: Understanding that everyone's journey and pace of learning can be different, we offer all participants extended access to the programme. So, even if you don't graduate in the initial 12-week cycle, you can continue to engage with the content, refine your skills, and make the most of the resources available.

In essence, while the core curriculum is delivered over 12 weeks, participants have the support to access the programme for up to 6 months, ensuring they derive maximum value and achieve their goals.

Mentorship: You'll have access to experienced mentors who can provide insights, answer questions, and offer guidance based on their expertise and experience.
Peer Support: Engage with fellow participants, share experiences, ask questions, and collaborate on projects. Learning from peers often provides diverse perspectives and solutions.
Resources & Tools: We provide a variety of resources, from reading materials to tools, that can assist you in your learning journey.
