Admission is by invitation only. The Eureka mentoring program is for founders and/or chief executives of entrepreneurial businesses with £1M+ annual revenues, who demonstrate business acumen, have a scalable business model with high growth potential and want to maximise their revenues and profit or even become market leaders in their field. Angel, VC or otherwise well-funded startups and businesses heading towards £1M in annual revenues are also occasionally admitted.
Before admission to the program you must also have attended the 3-Day Quantum Leap marketing workshop. Why? Understanding the full picture in advance will accelerate the results you achieve on the Eureka program.
N.B. Our admission criteria is designed to ensure that you have a stable business, sufficient resources to implement what you learn from the program, and can make a worthwhile contribution to the rest of the group.

At one of four different carefully selected premium venues around the UK, typically country house hotels. Each venue is within easy reach of motorways and rail links. We look for venues that deliver top quality service and provide a sense of occasion whenever we meet.
Getting completely away from your business, physically and mentally, makes it much easier for you to focus ON your business rather than IN your business and the variety of different venues helps to inspire your creative thinking. Each venue has at least a 4-star rating and normally has leisure facilities on site as well.
