Our Partnerships

We are passionate about working with startups and scaleups, we are involved in a number of startup/scaleup hubs across the UK and we have also entered into a a selection of partnerships to help us continuously build upon our knowledge and our understanding of entrepreneurs, startups/scaleups and the challenges they face. Below are a few examples:

MassChallenge UK

We have been partnered with MassChallenge UK for over a year now. MassChallenge are a non-profit organisation on a mission to support startups across all industries – providing equity-free cash prizes and access to much needed resources including office space, mentors, exposure to a network of like- minded entrepreneurs and links to MCUK partners and the wider ecosystem. Our partnership gives us the opportunity to spend more time and work with startups and fast growth businesses, which means we are always learning!

What has our partnership involved so far?

  • “Bootcamp” and interactive “lunch and learn” sessions – talking to the cohort about key legal issues affecting their businesses
  • Hosting pre-final judging rounds at our office in London – our startup team across Eversheds Sutherland get to take part in the selection process. Seeing businesses present their ideas is truly inspiring
  • Various member of our team are also available for “office hours” and “mentoring
