Natwest Accelerator Hub Event Live Scribe

Natwest Accelerator Hub Event Live Scribe

Natwest and University of Leeds use live scribing and rich pictures to map out funding routes for start ups and entrepreneurs in South Yorkshire.

The Hero

Natwest - if you don’t know ;) - are one of the biggest banks in the U.K. Alongside the University of Leeds, they run an accelerator programme for early stage businesses and entrepreneurs to set them up for success.

The Challenge

The Accelerator Hub team were struggling to signpost start ups to appropriate funding sources at the right stage of their business. They decided to run an event bringing funders together but were unsure how to capture the varying streams of funding in an easy way for start-ups to refer to.

The Solution

Nifty Fox Creative suggested live scribing the event to capture all the expertise in the room and come up with a one page funding map that could be used by start ups after the event to identify appropriate funding sources at the right stage in their business journey.

The Outcome

We produced a one page funding map that is now being used by Natwest Accelerator Hubs across the North to guide early stage entrepreneurs through the murky waters of business funding!
