Key phases on the programme:


Take a good look at where your business is now. Planning effectively involves knowing your strengths and weaknesses. This stage will guide you through self-evaluation, help you to think about your unique offer and understand the current position of your business.

Mapping the Future

Consider your options and develop a plan for where you want to go. This is your chance to think about where you want to be in the long term, consider the market changes affecting your future, and develop the growth plan to maximise your potential.

Vision, USP, Culture and Leadership

Clarifying your vision and honing your USP will develop a clearer understanding of your growth path, as well as provide the inspiration you need to lead your team and create the culture necessary for success.

Your offer to the Global Market

Explore how to position your indie to take full advantage of opportunities beyond your existing business in the UK and global markets, and create a path to additional revenue streams. 

Show Me the Money

You may need additional money to grow your business. We explain the current range of funding and corporate finance options, and give you the tools to decide which of these, if any, is best suited to your growth plan. Many Indielab indies go on to secure funding or investment with our partners.

Network and Alumni

Meet our network of global executives and industry leaders who contribute to the programme. Once you have completed the Indielab programme you will automatically become part of our alumni, and have access to our alumni events and benefits.
