Imperial College London is calling on tech start-ups in Hammersmith and Fulham to apply for training and support on the White City Innovators’ Programme.

The programme, in partnership with NatWest, aims to support the development of local tech entrepreneurs by providing free space to work at the Imperial White City Incubator and training in areas such as fundraising, team building, IP, marketing and pitch practice.

However, those interesting in applying need to get their skates on, with the deadline approaching on midnight on Sunday night (September 10).

Over the four weeks, start-ups will interact with sector experts through a series of workshops, surgeries and networking opportunities. Each team will have access to a dedicated and experienced mentor.

The programme finishes with a pitch to a panel made up of external investors and directors from Imperial Innovations and NatWest.
