The fantastic Joel from Spiral Skills who was part of the Year One cohort and has since successfully gone on to raise £50,000 investment via the UBS Donor Advised Fund (DAF) alongside UnLtd post investment support says: “If you are worried about it being another thing that hooks you up with 25 mentors, that’s not what is going to happen. It’s a really targeted programme, that gives you expert advice and will make sure you do things that will really improve the efficiency of your business."
