By submitting an application to be placed on the Vulcan Creatives Incubator, the participant agrees to the following. This explains how the programme will be delivered by us and the responsibilities that Vulcan Works and the participant has in relation to the programme.
What is offered
The programme will run for a period of 6 months from the start date (this date will be set out in a welcome email).
As part of the programme, participants will have access to the following services:
Free access to our co-working space at Vulcan Works for a period of 6 months. Meeting rooms may be made available at the discretion of the Centre Manager.
Access to a Business Growth Manager for tailored support. This support starts with a half day diagnostic leading to the development of a business growth plan and the creation of milestones. Subsequent sessions will last for approximately 1 hour and take place on a monthly basis with each participant to update on progress achieved and ongoing support requirements identified. These sessions are organised between the participant and the Business Growth Manager on an ad hoc basis.
Fortnightly cohort huddles will be organised.
At least 6 business support events will be delivered. These will last in the region of one hour.
Partner surgeries will be regularly organised.
Integration into the business community at Vulcan Works.
Participation in the Vulcan Creatives Showcase.
The opportunity to apply for the Vulcan Creatives Lift Off grant.
The programme is provided free of charge to participants. Due to the nature of the programme, and situations that may be beyond our control, we will use reasonable endeavours to provide participants with the services set out above. Any advice or assistance that we provide, or any of our mentors or partners provide, is general in nature and is not designed to be specific to your particular circumstances.
We ask that participants are fully engaged in the programme and are an active member of the community at Vulcan Works. As part of that, they are required to work from Vulcan Works at least 2 days per week, attend all 1-2-1 business coaching sessions organised and attend as many events as possible. If a participant decides to leave the programme they will no longer be eligible for free co-working desk space. Vulcan Works opening hours are 8.30am – 5pm, Monday – Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) and participants may access the building only during these times.) Participants may not use the Vulcan Works as a correspondence or registered address without prior consent.
Participants will own all intellectual property rights created in their business whilst on the programme. This includes anything in relation to a business’s trademarks, patents, copyright, design rights or confidential information, whether developed independently or with any input from our Business Growth Manager. Any discussions had with our Business Growth Manager in relation to a participants business will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed without consent. It is a participants responsibility to ensure that all of your data is held and transferred safely and securely.
Participants must act in a professional manner and comply with our reasonable directions. We reserve the right to terminate a participants place on the programme. If a participant chooses not to engage in the programme or is not progressing as we may expect, or for any other reason we may terminate the agreement.
