Tipping our hat to the hand-in-hand connection between entrepreneurship and agile working, TRAM made a speedy pivot to online delivery earlier this year, so the Runway cohort will work virtually throughout the 12-week accelerator program.
Introducing the 2020 TRAM Runway cohort:
TRAM Runway is designed to build on the skills set in motion by TRAMx and TRAM Track, and supports in validating their business models, developing their go-to-market strategy and progressing their commercial planning.
The teams will receive hands-on coaching and mentorship surrounding key concepts and frameworks for accelerating their research, while continuing to directly engage with real customers, and participate in three key events that progress their thinking.
The first is the Reverse Investor Pitch, where six investors from a range of backgrounds will dispense wisdom on what they’re keeping eyes and ears open for in business. This is followed by the Dolphin Pool, where teams will pitch to four investors for the express purpose of getting feedback and learning how to nail their investment pitch.
The program culminates with the TRAM Runway Showcase, an evening to celebrate the entrepreneurial acumen the teams have gained and the progress they’ve made. This year’s online affair promises to beam passion and excitement into each attendee’s living room, while providing the opportunity for a virtual cheers and pat on the back.
The 2020 Runway cohort is living proof that there’s no shortage of innovative people working at the intersection of research and innovation. This next step in their journey sees them well on their way to charting new courses in each of their industries, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish.
