InnovationRCA launches First50 Scale-Up programme

To connect their start-ups with industry mentors and help them reach greater heights

The Royal College of Art’s centre for enterprise and entrepreneurship,

Innovation RCA, has reached a significant milestone on its journey, helping 82 graduates launch more than 50 spinouts.

These companies range from one producing a vegan leather alternative made from pineapple leaves,

To making clothes that expand as children grow and another producing concrete material available in a roll.

Collectively these companies have created more than 650 UK jobs and generated more than £87 million turnover in the last 10 years.
A number of InnovationRCA’s companies have either achieved the status of scale-up* or are very close to achieving this.

To help these companies reach the next level and create successful and sustainable British companies,

Innovation RCA has launched a new First50 Scale-Up programme

Which will pair InnovationRCA entrepreneurs with senior executives from industry to foster future heavyweight talent in innovation and disruption.

Innovation RCA director, Dr Nadia Danhash, said:

‘The First50 Scale-Up programme is about so much more than celebrating the achievements of our graduate companies.

It’s about recognising their potential to scale to even greater heights,

Create more jobs and exports, improve more people’s lives and change the world we live in.

We’ve been with them from day one and we will continue to stand with them.

Shoulder to shoulder and support them with this new scale-up programme.’

Royal College of Art Vice-Chancellor, Dr Paul Thompson, said:

‘We are so pleased to be launching the First50 Scale-Up programme of support

That says that the RCA is your partner for life and will continue to support you long after you’ve graduated.

We must give thanks to a number of senior executives from global and British large corporations

Having agreed to become scale-up business fellows.

Giving up their time to meet our founders and provide insights to help these companies grow.’

*The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) definition of a scale-up

Which is a company that has 10 or more employees and is growing at a rate of 20% year on year for three years.
InnovationRCA’s Success Stories

IKAWA – Maker of the World’s First Digital Micro Coffee Roaster


Founded by Royal College of Art graduates Andrew Stordy and Rombout Frieling,

IKAWA, is a scaleup that’s created a micro-roasting system that is revolutionising the word of coffee for producers and consumers.

Designed and made in the UK and selling in over 70 countries,

The IKAWA vision is to change the coffee industry for the benefit of coffee growers as well as coffee drinkers,

By facilitating a rewarding trading relationship with smallholder coffee farmers and helping them improve their coffee quality.

Coffee enthusiasts order green, unroasted beans, which are then roasted at the push of a button and ground in an IKAWA Home Roaster.

Industry professionals can use the Pro Roaster to test new harvests and replicate these roasts when back in the office.

So simple, the whole family can use it. It’s powerful and its capability only grows with your curiosity.

See why so many people choose SaleHoo to start and grow their online businesses and sell online for free with bidallhours..

Before starting SaleHoo, I was an online seller on TradeMe,  New Zealand’s local auction site. I now sell online for free with bidallhours.

Like you, I had a long list of challenges that made running a profitable online business more difficult than it needed to be…

  1. I had a hard time finding wholesale and dropship suppliers with real wholesale prices…
  2. It was difficult to find suppliers who would work with a new business and offer low or no minimum orders…
  3. I couldn’t tell whether a supplier was legitimate, or if they would take my money and run…
  4. I struggled to decide which products to sell and when to sell them…
  5. The amount of information out there was overwhelming, but so much of it was out of date, low in quality, or just plain wrong…

…I wasted a lot of time trying to find the right suppliers, products, and info. Everything I needed to be successful was scattered between a bunch of websites, tools, and training resources.

Despite these challenges, I did manage to run a profitable online business (eventually), and other sellers took notice and began asking me how I did it.

My answers weren’t very satisfying because my success was due to a lot of trial and error. This made me realize there had to be a better way…

So I teamed up with Mark Ling, a successful Internet entrepreneur, and started SaleHoo to give online sellers everything they need to be successful in one affordable place.

At SaleHoo, you’ll find…

  • 8,000+ trusted wholesale and dropship suppliers that we’ve personally reviewed
  • 1.6 million+ branded products you’ll recognize at prices that leave plenty of room for profit
  • SaleHoo’s staff offering 24/7 support and guidance, a massive and super helpful community of online sellers, and free training on all aspects of starting and growing your online business

Sounds great, right?

But if you’re like most online business owners, especially new ones, your first question is, “How much is this going to cost me?”

So we’ve made SaleHoo affordable for anyone who is serious about owning a successful online business…

And it’s their success stories that keep us going.

From huge wins like Chris Botting, who went from $0 to $70,000 in four months…

“I started with nothing but a hope and a dream. With help from SaleHoo, I was able to source quality suppliers who were willing to give me a chance. Now, because of the lists provided by SaleHoo, after only 4 months in, my top line is $70,000 per year and growing. You have to start somewhere—and that’s a huge leap from $0 just 4 short months ago.”

…to Andrew Kowalchuk, a single dad of three who was able to quit his full-time job after only 3 months…

“I started an online business in no time. In as little as two to three months, I had easily matched my original salary. One month later, I quit my horrible 7-5 job, and ever since then, I have been spending nearly the whole day with my family.”

…to members who just want to make some extra money on the side to support their family after a financial setback, take an extra- special vacation, or supplement their regular income…

“Profits in 3 months were able to support my family when a family member went into the hospital and my husband lost his full-time job.”

    sell free online is one of the absolute best ways to turn your loyal audience into a consistent revenue stream. In fact, many of my customers set out to start their shops specifically for the purpose of marketing and selling.

    Sell online for free.

    I will discuss how to use  BIDALLHOURS to sell products. Whether you are selling an existing product of your own or you are using your hub to sell.  Products for a 3rd party company in exchange for a referral fee. I recommend that all sellers have some kind of product offering.

    Stop overlooking the money making potential of using your shop to sell free online .Read on to learn about how simple it can be.

    The Keys to Selling Products for free Online  Audience and Conversion Rate

    The two biggest factors in how successful you can be with offering products to sell free online. The size of your audience you are able to convert into paying customers (also referred to as your conversion rate). First, we will discuss how easy growing your audience can be.

    Building Your Audience Means More Potential Customers

    Building a bigger audience is something that every seller should be focused on at all times.The best way to build your audience is through quality content that adds real value to your customers.  Creating content that is easily shared among people always helps expand the potential visibility of your website.

    When you grow the audience of people who regularly read your blog, you also are growing your potential customer base. The more eyes that you are able to get on your blog, the more potential purchases you will be able to drive. Besides growing your audience, you should also be mindful of the percentage of them you are turning into customers.

    Increase Your Conversion Rates by Keeping It Relevant

    Increasing window shoppers that you convert into purchasers  is to present,real value proposition with what you are selling. Even if you create engaging, shareable content .That your shoppers love.if you cant sell free online its almost surefire route to failure.

    Launch a website that gives your buyers advice or recommendations. Find a way to drive your customers towards the products or service that you recommend.  This makes your sales pitch seamless. Much more likely that your buyers will take you up on it.

    Selling Your Own Products direct from your website: Turning window shoppers Into Customers

    Manysellers already have a product that they are looking to sell. This could be something as simple as selling an e-book , or perhaps selling your time as a consultant or other type of expert within your field.

    Take a step back to sell free online

    I have seen many sellers get overzealous when selling products .They own themselves, to the point that they neglect to sell free online.Their products that are intended to draw their customers in. My advice is to never lose sight of what brings your window shoppers to you in the first place: excellent content.

    The best advertising for any product is to give your potential customers a taste of what you have to offer. And there is no better way to do this then in showing your expertise. Using the best marketplace platform for selling online for free  and make available for everyone to see. If you forget this point, you might find that you lose them,  before you  to turn them into customers!

    sell free online

    To convince a customer to pay you for a product or for your time, show them a clear example. explain how this will make their life easier or more fulfilling is an absolute necessity.

    Like it or not, we all encounter dozens of advertising messages each day. Because of this, most people train themselves to filter and ignore empty sales pitches that overpromise and underdeliver.

    The good news is that you make a well founded case for why customers should purchase what you are offering. I recommend avoiding trying to come up with the perfect sales pitch, and instead making yourself as relatable as possible. People are more likely to buy from a trusted source, so authenticity is absolutely vital.

    sell free online

    Pointing your readers towards selling for free  somewhere else can be extremely lucrative. Typically the company refer customers who will give you a fee, in exchange for referring the customer to them. Best of all, you do not have to worry about taking on any of the risk in terms of holding the products.

    Commissions vary quite a bit depending if you can sell for free.  I always recommend reviewing options, so that you can be sure you are going with the most competitive option available. Most e-commerce sites will pay more for affiliates who send them the most customers, so I recommend not getting discouraged if you are not seeing really high conversions in the beginning.

    FINALLY

    In order to sell as many products as possible. I  recommend narrowing your focus to goods and services that you can sell online for free . One great way to do this is to partner with a major online marketplace, such as bidallhours.
