When is Impulse 2023?

“The Programme was an extremely rewarding experience, providing an opportunity to meet other entrepreneurs and experts that shared the knowledge they gained from building successful businesses.

“The mentor sessions with Steve Barlow and Will Tipping-Woods were one of the most enjoyable parts of the Programme. The sessions gave our group time to explore the workshop theory and apply it to our own experiences. Steve and Will continually tested the About:Energy business case and our pitch deck was shaped significantly with their input. What we learned will help us when we start our first funding round later in the year.

Magna sponsored my participation in the Programme and provided hours of advice during 1-to-1 sessions.”
