Early Stage Partner Programme

 

Calling all 'digital disruptors'!

logoTechMarketView and Capita Scaling Partner (Capita’s new start-up development business) are working together to identify 'digital disruptors' to take part in the new TechMarketView Early Stage Partner programme.

We are offering an unrivalled opportunity for early-stage UK tech companies to access lucrative client markets that would typically be out of their reach.

The digital disruptor initiative with Capita Scaling Partner is the first in the TechMarketView Early Stage Partner programme series. This programme extends TechMarketView's highly successful Little British Battler and Great British Scaleup programmes to established tech suppliers seeking to partner with high potential, early-stage companies.

Capita Scaling Partner Digital Disruptors will get the benefit of:

  • A dedicated business development team that works with them over 2-3 years to secure scale business deals from Capita's extensive client base
  • Direct access to decision makers in Capita's corporate clients through relationships that have been built up over 30 years
  • The ability to negotiate scale deals with clients on an equal footing
  • Direct channels to UK and Ireland consumers
  • Capita’s proprietary consumer data, collected from handling over 45 million contacts every day
  • Access to Capita's low cost and scalable shared services
  • Access to Capita's extensive investor network and relationships with investment banks.

Capita will sit side by side with the successful candidates, pitching their proposition to its own client base, providing them with direct access to decision makers. Successful companies are encouraged to 'think big and act big' while retaining their own brand, culture, identity, agility, and negotiating terms with clients and suppliers on an equal footing. 

Extensive business development support

Successful candidates will progress through a series of business workshops run over a four-week period, including:

  • Technology workshops – led by Capita's experienced software and hardware IT professionals to review your technology base and explore improvements
  • Sales workshops – with Capita business units and business development professionals to explore cross-selling opportunities into Capita's clients, leveraging Capita's direct-to-consumer channels, honing your proposition, and building out your development roadmap
  • Financial modelling workshops – to rigorously analyse your existing business plan and to model how Capita could improve it through partnership.

At the end of the four-week programme, the candidates that stand to benefit the most from a relationship with Capita will be offered the opportunity to become a Capita Scaling Partner.
