“The most successful entrepreneurs started with no experience. If you have no experience either setting up a business or working in the UK, it does not matter as we are here to help.”

-Rupert Gather 

“The UK is a global leader in finance and financial services as well as having a very forward-thinking approach to regulation so in addition to that, you have access to world-class talent, be it in financial services and technical services and creativity as well.”

-Marvin Ebeledike


“It’s been amazing honestly I wouldn’t be here without them they’ve helped in every step of the way and made the visa process so seamless and the training sessions that they’ve given us throughout actually has been very helpful in terms of being able to set up the company.”
