Tech London Advocates launches free ‘Triage’ mentoring service for London tech start-ups
Over 120 business leaders to share advice to “help new ventures get airborne”
Independent advocacy group Tech London Advocates has today announced the launch of its tech start-up ‘Triage’, offering London entrepreneurs a free one hour, one-on-one mentoring session with a leading industry figure.
Based at TechHub@Campus, the initiative is backed by over 120 ‘advocates’ from major companies, including Unruly Media and SeedCamp, who will chair the advice sessions and provide support on any business area, from funding and tax enquiries to marketing and recruitment.
The no-appointment necessary service will run every weekday, starting today, between 9am and 1pm, and start-ups will be matched to the most appropriate mentor based on their requirements.
The launch follows the recent meeting led by the advocacy group where it outlined its plans for the ‘Triage’ scheme, as well as various other suggestions to help support the capital’s early-stage technology businesses such as the removal of restrictions on UK immigration.
Tech London Advocates founder, Russ Shaw, commented: “Triage is one of the most tangible ways in which Tech London Advocates can help early stage ventures get off the ground.
“We will be offering practical hands on help to these firms, with the aim of providing 2,000 hours of free advice during our first year.”
James Clark, Tech London Advocates policy manager and Triage lead, continued:
Building a website for your business idea is easier than you might think. Our online tool ranks the top website builders that offer free trials.
“We are lucky enough to have an incredible pool of ready and willing advocates from organisations […] who have volunteered their time to help London’s newest businesses to get the best possible start,
“It’s our intention that the service will […] give London’s start-up community the best opportunity to succeed. “
