Joint e-Ventures can turn internet ideas into reality

So you have a great idea for the Internet but don’t know where to start? Unfortunately, without the right IT partner, only a small percentage of such ventures enjoy commercial success.

This is where the IE Partnerships' team of specialists comes into play. In our Joint e-Venture programme, we undertake the software development and provide a mix of advice and hands on assistance in return for an equity stake in your business.

Within reason, we invest whatever is required to develop the product or service – and we contribute in a number of ways:

  • Strategically by applying elements of our advisory services to make sure your business plan actually works.
  • By using our IT system design and software advisory services to ensure a cost effective and scalable approach.
  • By undertaking the development, using a mix of UK and off shore based resources to ensure a low cost seamless development.

Sometimes we ask for a contribution towards development costs. On other occasions we participate simply on a shared revenue basis. The approach depends very much on the merits of your idea, your business plan and the credentials of your team. We also have to be certain that you have thought about marketing your product or service and how you will make those important sales.

If you have a good idea and would like to apply for our Joint e-Venture programme, please complete the application form here. The form opens in a pop-up window. If you have a business plan, you can also use the application form to upload that and send it to us.
