Boost Funding to help UK startups and scaleups
Who can apply?
The Boost Fund is a unique investment opportunity for founders who don't have fundraising experience or a ready-built network of potential investors.
Capital Pilot is committed to helping underrepresented founders and regions of the UK, so we’re here to help you grow your business.
Any UK-based high-growth startup or scaleup can apply for a £50,000 investment from the Boost Fund—from any sector or region and with any business model.
"We found the comments that you gave very insightful and it did highlight areas where we needed to give more time and more research and that's what we've actually been doing with the hope of improving the score.
We've taken advice before we brought our information in to Capital Pilot and we know that it can have a bearing on the investment that can come from investment angels.
I was expecting [the assessment] to be a generic document ... the fact that it seemed to be a very personalised breakdown, I was surprised how fast you were able to turn it around, which was impressive."
"The Capital Pilot experience was great, it was good to go through the analysis, the process was relatively straightforward. The documents you requested were not too much, it felt about right. The quality of the report is great and the personal feedback that you get is really insightful. I would recommend it to other founders.
You're more interested in the personal feedback, in terms of the stuff that's actually relevant to the business. So the 3 quotes at the start of the report and the bespoke information that you get every other page across the 4 sections; I think it's really valuable."
"Once somebody understands what their investment opportunity is, and where its strengths and weaknesses are; the second thing they often want, is access to investors.
I give them access to investors in a range of ways, but one of the things that has proved quite helpful, is your investor matching; because it's tailored to the individual business by stage, by sector, etc; and it's giving them the investor information that's appropriate to them and that's important because as a founder when you're raising investment, you don't have time to speak to every single investor.
You want to focus your attention on the investors who are most likely to invest in your business because it meets their preferences."
