LAST CHANCE TO BE A 'DIGITAL DISRUPTOR'

logoDON'T MISS OUT! Applications close TODAY for Capita Scaling Parter Digital Disruptor, the first initiative in our new TechMarketView Early Stage Partner programme in association with Capita Scaling Partner, Capita’s new start-up development business.

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

Here's what's in store for successful applicants:

Accelerated market access

logoCapita 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 will be offered the opportunity to engage with Capita as equity partners.

Eligibility requirements

You should be the founder or CEO/MD of an early-stage UK tech company that has a digital technology proposition with the potential of disrupting established markets or creating new markets. By 'early stage' we mean a company whose product or service is (i) at – or close to – the MVP (minimum viable product) stage: (ii) has been successfully deployed to one or more clients; and (iii) is now looking to distribute at scale.

To be selected for the programme you should apply in the first instance to attend an intensive 90-minute Pre-Qualification Session (PQS) with TechMarketView research directors and Capita Scaling Partner advisors. The PQS event will be held in London on Wednesday 4th July 2018.

Applications must be submitted on this webform by close of business TODAY, Friday 13th April 2018.

Applicants will be notified if their application has been successful by Friday 25th May. There is no charge to apply for or, if accepted, participate in a PQS.
