Running the gauntlet is based around The Gauntlet, an online tool that acts like a virtual investor asking the questions an investor would typically ask but providing useful feedback. Access to The Gauntlet normally costs £299 but running the gauntlet entrants can access it free of charge. It features useful content and generates a confidential report card identifying your company's strengths and weaknesses.
As well as CREATE's investment funding, £250k worth of in-kind services from sponsors is available at different stages in the competition via a combination of first come first served masterclasses, one-to-one clinics and services to finalist/winning companies. And early birds registering before 4 June could win a place on the prestigious Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) summer school worth £1000. All in all, a compelling package of benefits for everyone, irrespective of a company's ability to attract investment funding.
