The Global Entrepreneur Programme

Attacking the Greatest Problems

The British Government's Global Entrepreneur Programme was established to help the world's best entrepreneurs go global from the UK through the help of Dealmakers such as the founder of this site and initiative. It is a free service. One such Dealmaker has taken this idea to focus on the the greatest tech from around the world to solve the world's greatest problems through the Programme.

Which Problems?

Which Technologies?

We concentrate on the following areas:

  • Female founders - the world needs more entrepreneurs, women are unjustly facing more obstacles than men

  • Technologies which make democracy more transparent and effective giving a voice to all

  • Environmental protection technologies

  • Medical tech which will save lives, especially of the most vulnerable in society

What the Global Entrepreneur Programme as a whole has so far achieved:

Committed to Tackle the Greatest Problems

  • Raised over £1 billion of private investment for companies (source UK Govt 2019)

  • Helped add more than £1 billion in market valuation of the companies since working with them

  • Raised investments, found key staff, made deals with customers, accessed government resources for exports

Success Stories

Companies We've Helped from accessing Government Resources, Angel/VC Funding, Staffing, Offices to Customers in Some Cases. All to Help them Scale.

 

Air for Life

AFL technology began in space with NASA in 1994 when NASA began planning for deep space exploration including proposed manned missions to Mars such as the "Constellation Mission Program", in 2013 which required sustaining life in space for months and years at a time. AFL uses the technology to provide clean air in public transport, hospitals, offices - anywhere there is a pollution problem. We helped them export globally thanks to the UK's International Trade Advisors, and advised on strategy and opening doors to potential customers.

Aspire

We believe that it should never be your gender, age, race, religion, origin, sexuality or economic status that define your ability to perform at the highest level in your chosen line of work. And researchers around the world have proven time and time again that organisations that build truly diverse and inclusive teams achieve up to 30% better financial results. Aspire using non-bias recruitment via blockchain.

FluoretiQ

$175m is the annual cost to the NHS of additional bed days due to slow diagnosis. 700,000 people are killed worldwide annually due to super-bugs.  Our technology is built on advances in glycan chemistry and quantum optics, packaged in an easy to use and scalable offering so bacteria is identified by proprietary nano-material labels.

By working with government we want to accelerate the success of these important technologies. By using our private equity background we can help companies accelerate their growth. This is all a free service, so we vet companies for us to focus on.
