What We Offer
NDRC sources and builds digital startups to invest in and work with, providing them with an integrated offering of knowledge, experience, expertise and a modest amount of capital to enable them to become investor-ready faster, more successfully and more efficiently than otherwise.
Investing through an integrated model of a modest amount of capital investment as well as hands-on expert guidance and support, NDRC's goal is to help accelerate ventures to the next meaningful milestone in their journey. This may be to secure seed investment, bootstrapping early growth or to have gained sufficient feedback to invalidate the initial proposition.
We provide startup teams with
- Cash investment
- An accelerator programme working alongside a broad spectrum of the best startups
- Expert mentorship with industry experts
- Workshops and networking events
- Access to NDRC’s industry contacts, investors and portfolio companies
- An opportunity to pitch directly to investors
- Subsequent support through to seed investment
What we look for?
We invest in and support the most promising early stage technology based startups that apply to us.
We look for startups with exceptional, ambitious founders that address a global opportunity. Some of the aspects we look at in any business is the team make-up, the market size, what stage the company is at, what type of solution the company provides and what its competitive advantage is.
How do I know if I need Acceleration?
Are potential customers taking a long time to convert into actual deals? Are you unsure why your business isn’t growing as fast as you would like? Are you unable to attract investors? Are there not enough hours in the day to do what needs to be done? If so, we may be able to help.
If you would like to explore your digital business or digital business idea with NDRC, our Venture Investment Team will be hosting meetings throughout the country with entrepreneurs seeking further information. If you would like to chat with us, please let us know here when a suitable time and place is listed.
