What will we cover?

Support is tailored for each company based on initial scoping conversations to identify gaps in current knowledge, resources or networks and to understand next-stage strategic activity required for scale.

The cohort has benefited to date from introductions to investors, developing partnerships for collaboration in grant applications, product development and evaluations; understanding regulatory requirements; engagement with customer segments for growth alongside peer-learning and knowledge exchange from the wider P4SY cohort and mentors.

Delivery & Format

The programme is delivered using a hybrid model of in-person and online events for the P4SY cohort (including an investor demo day), alongside 1:1 scoping sessions, mentor sessions, and facilitated introductions for each company participating in the programme.

The programme has a dedicated online community of practice for the P4SY companies to utilise for shared learning.
