Incubator Membership

Our Incubator programme is designed to develop the mindset and tools that underlie success and to provide the support needed in your journey as an entrepreneur.

We support creative entrepreneurial talent from around the country.  Whatever stage your venture is at, we aim to move you and your enterprise to the next level with a programme that combines individually tailored support with group development and learning opportunities.

Incubator Membership

  • Our priority is the entrepreneur: We are committed to the individual and maximising your potential. Whilst here to support moving your business forward in the here and now, our focus is on your upwards trajectory as an entrepreneur beyond any one particular venture.
  • Personal development is key: A core part of the MeWe Incubator Programme is helping founders and leaders understand and strengthen their personal capacities as entrepreneurs. Our experience at MeWe tells us with 100% certainty that this is the single most important factor in achieving success more quickly and with greater impact and longevity.
  • BAME* focus: We are dedicated to ensuring that BAME creative entrepreneurial talent is able to thrive whilst working towards a more equitable and diverse arts & creative sector. For this reason, whilst our programme is emphatically open to all, we have a minimum 70% BAME participation.
  • Home for BAME* talent: We provide a community of peers and wider industry supporters, a platform to showcase achievements and a space to hold constructive dialogue about issues of BAME representation as well as action plans for promoting the transformations we want to see.

*Whilst we have used the abbreviation BAME, we recognise the diversity of individual identities and lived experiences, and understand that BAME is an imperfect term that does not fully capture the racial, cultural and ethnic identities of people that experience structural and systematic inequality.

 

We offer a 12-month programme that includes:

  • Mentoring & coaching (up to 10 hours)
  • Entrepreneur’s Retreat (once a year)
  • Peer learning groups and networks (10+ events)
  • Dedicated in-house team (regular check-ins throughout the year)
