About the Event
Cornerstone Partners is the first Angel Investor Network exclusively focused on investing in UK based black-owned businesses. Cornerstone: 2.0 is a brand new nine-week program for 25 Black-only businesses to significantly grow their network of investors, expand their business operations and absorb cutting-edge knowledge over a period of 9-weeks.
Cornerstone 2.0 will run at the prestigious Level39 in Canary Wharf with sweeping views of London and will be the UK’s first scale-up program designed exclusively for emerging businesses run by black founders aiming to catapult their ventures to the next level of growth. We’re making history.
Delivered over 9 weeks, Cornerstone 2.0 combines advanced business training from serial entrepreneurs and renowned speakers, expert support and coaching to help growth-stage ventures accelerate their success. Cornerstone Partners have invested over £250,000 within the last year into private black-owned and are specifically looking for black ventures which are SEIS/EIS qualified that require under £100K to grow within the next 12 months.
Two hours of networking coaching, mentoring, advice in-person, each week in the evening for 9 weeks culminating in a final pitch day (demo day) is what it takes. If you are successful in being invited onto the program, you will be asked to pay an administration cost of £199. This money is used to ensure the program is coordinated well and the participants remain committed. That's an average of £12.45 an hour contribution to accelerating your business' success.
