About W2 Labs
The first-class mentorship on offer means successful start-ups will have the chance to learn from experienced subject matter experts, who will be on hand to help at the dedicated office at Wincanton’s headquarters. Each start-up will have opportunities to pitch for investment from both Wincanton and L Marks.
Zero equity is taken in exchange for joining W2 Labs. However, where we see a business opportunity together, and we want to work with you over the longer-term, we may offer a financial investment in exchange for a small share of your company.
Wincanton and L Marks have allocated capital to invest in the start-ups invited to participate in W2 Labs. Prior to joining the programme, terms will be agreed to invest a capped amount of capital in return for a mutually-agreed equity level. We do not take a minimum level of equity as W2 Labs is open to teams at all stages of business.
