Here’s what you need to know about it
Marco Robinson, the founder of NAKED Group, has launched the world’s first entrepreneur funding and accelerator company.
Called The New Rich List, the platform aims to help start-ups “pitch their business model, get funded, receive mentoring and advice, and gain access to the New Rich List’s database of 50,000 customers”.
According to Robinson, the platform has already secured £2m in pre-seed capital.
Robinson said: “The New Rich List is the most exciting and disruptive thing I have ever done. The investor interest we have had so far has been phenomenal. Think Dragons’ Den meets the Apprentice in an offline formality, but with the unique concept of both mentoring and funding entrepreneurs. It is something I have been working on for 10 years.
“By rewarding customers generously, in a crypto-currency available for use on the newest and most exciting products and services on the market, the New Rich List will become a hub for the best, most talked about, most investable businesses of the future.”
Robinson wants to list the New Rich List on the AIM Market within two years and various other stock markets.
“The beauty of it is that instead of competing with other businesses, within the New Rich List entrepreneurs can collaborate with diverse start-ups across a variety of sectors- hugely strengthening their network,” he added.
