CASTS is a Project part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) that aims to expand the provision of London’s high quality accelerator programmes in order to generate more innovative technology and technology-focused fast growth companies. It will also fill the present gap in provision for a specialist support service that will help technology small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) to rapidly grow. This will be done by providing expertise that will enable them to overcome technical challenges and raise further private investment.
CASTS will help London create and nurture 600 potential world-beating tech companies. They will collectively raise over £30m in private investment and create over 450 new high-value jobs.
As one of the partners of the project with Capital Enterprise, UCL and City University, Newable will support 90 London-based SMEs to exploit international trade flows by helping them to understand and profit from high growth markets and investment opportunities. This will be achieved through bespoke 1-2-1 specialist support provided by sector-expert International Trade Advisers. Furthermore, Newable will help these companies enter overseas markets by organising 5 trade missions in the Digital, Technology and Science sectors to selected markets.
will help London technology SMEs become “investment ready” by helping them to demonstrate international trade potential and raise international investment.
