The Programme

Indielab is a four month programme of high-level briefings and masterclasses on business strategy and investment-readiness.

Indielab gives you the skills to carry your business forward, offering support and insights from the most successful business leaders in TV. Six highly structured training days feature the key areas of business that affect your growth.  

The programme closes with the opportunity to pitch for investment from our network of active investors. 

Here are some of the key phases on the programme.

Onboarding
