- To find out more & how to apply:


Too often, technical founders create companies to only later discover that they do not address real market problems. Even worse, getting to this conclusion often takes years of founders’ time as they go through several business iterations, building software that goes largely un-used in the process.

The Bakery has set up the Start Programme to enable you - raw technical / developer talent - to build companies that respond to immediate challenges faced by industry today. We give you exclusive access to the key stakeholders – the decision makers and people who matter – within corporates who possess decades of industry experience. Through joining Start you’ll go through a journey to discover the sector’s true pain points, while at the same time securing the best footing available upon which to start a company, solving real market needs.

We’ve unlocked the problems, found your first customer (even your first potential investor): now all we need is you.

Members of the cohort are placed onto a structured programme where you can meet a co-founder, gain access to corporates’ real pain points, and develop a network with London’s investment and entrepreneurial community. At different stages of the programme teams are eligible to raise a pre-seed and seed round from our fund, as well as receiving a guaranteed monthly stipend of £1,500.

If you’re a software engineer or entrepreneur looking to build a new company that addresses proven market needs (representing 00/000 million-pound opportunities) we want to meet you.

Our next cohort begins in January 2019, and will be addressing the sports, e-sports, broadcast, gaming and betting sectors.
