Bathtub to Boardroom helps first-time entrepreneurs turn business ideas into reality. They do this by providing a nurturing home for their fledgling businesses during the early start-up stage. They provide vital infrastructure that many first-time entrepreneurs lack: affordable office space, a vibrant community, and hands-on support, advice and mentoring from experienced experts.
Bathtub 2 Boardroom became a registered charity in October 2011. They have helped over 60 different enterprises in take their early steps, and between them these have gone on to generate more than 140 paid jobs and raise over £1.5m in seed funding.
First-time entrepreneurs who are serious about building a business and are already well on their way to executing their idea. You do not have to have a fully developed business plan yet (although this would help) but they do need to see evidence that your business is viable and is likely to lead to sustainable job creation in the future.
