We support UK-wide founders in building businesses they are passionate about. To not only start them, but to thrive with expert business advice, funding and mentorship.
Through all that we do we strive to support an equal number of male and female founders, along with fostering a social impact focus amongst founders that we support.
Virgin is entrepreneurial at its heart, having spent the last 50 years starting and scaling businesses around the world.
In 2013, Virgin StartUp was founded by Sir Richard Branson to support the next generation of founders who are looking to do the same.
Since then, we have helped tens of thousands of founders to start and scale… and we’re just getting started.
We’re an entrepreneurially minded, not-for-profit organisation, that exists to empower founders to start up and thrive.
We know there’s a lot that goes into starting a business, so we’re here to help on all fronts - advice, access to funding, mentoring, training and sometimes just a friendly shoulder to lean on.
We provide straight talk and useful advice to make the entrepreneurial road less bumpy and access to a supportive and dynamic community to help founders have some fun along the way.
A diverse team that has recently grown to 15 members, help founders from idea stage right through to scaleup stage and are supported by expert Brand, Legal, People, Finance, IT and External Relations teams from the Virgin Group.
