Opportunity for 10 e-commerce start-ups to join London incubator Zoo Project
Tradedoubler programme includes a year’s free office space in Moorgate alongside mentoring from marketing and tech experts
The UK’s early-stage online businesses are being offered the chance to join London e-commerce incubator Zoo Project, with entries now open for its 2015 cohort.
Established in 2011 by affiliate marketing company Tradedoubler, the Zoo Project looks to provide an “innovative hub to reduce office costs for emerging start-ups” and has helped launch 11 businesses to date including Startups 1oo-listed LUX FIX and StyleNest.
This year’s programme will give 10 digital start-ups a year’s free office space at its new Moorgate premises alongside mentoring from in-house affiliate marketing and technology “experts”.
Successful applicants will also gain access to prospective brand advertisers and partners and necessary resources and equipment.
To secure a place, entrepreneurs need to submit a business plan which will then be judged by leading names from the industry including Vouchercloud managing director Matt Wood, Squawka Sports co-founder Leo Harrison, and head of product at Bauer Xcel Media Hannah Rouch.
Dan Cohen, Tradedoubler regional director, commented: “We’re looking forward to developing the programme further by creating a hub of creativity and business innovation from our new city-base.
“Through the Zoo Project, we’ve discovered innovative new affiliates, start-ups and publishers and have worked collaboratively with them to help maximise commercial opportunities in the early stages of their development. The insight we can share from some of the world’s most successful and respected brands is priceless for any new business and we’re looking forward to welcoming the next generation of talented web entrepreneurs.”
