We are immensely proud of our program sponsors here in London.  We really wouldn’t be able to provide our world-class program without their generous help and support. They provide invaluable counsel for us, our fellows, and sometimes pizza and beer.  Not in order of importance.

Deloitte

Build with us.

Everyone is talking about disruption, but we decided to act. That’s why we created Deloitte Ventures, to bring breakthrough ideas to market with you.

We co-create and co-invest with leading corporations to build new partnerships, platforms and products.

Emerging technologies are rewriting the rules and changing the way business is done. There is no blueprint – corporations are facing new, complex challenges and Deloitte Ventures offers a different way to tackle them.

We pair disruptive technologies and ground-breaking start-ups with our advisory heritage to solve pressing problems and achieve commercial success at scale.

Put simply, when it comes to breakthrough ideas, we don’t just talk, we do.

Tom Struthers, Incubator lead at Deloitte, commented: “We have been working with the SLP team for 4 years, to support several cohorts of fellows and we are constantly inspired by their curiosity, collaborative approach and entrepreneurial mindset. These are all qualities that we encourage in our employees and the wider ecosystem of organisations we work with. At Deloitte, we are always looking for opportunities to work with the best start-ups to solve our client’s most critical business problems and so we are proud to be embedded in this start-up community.”

Shoosmiths

We are really pleased that Shoosmiths have decided to join our sponsors this year for their first time. Thank you.

Shoosmiths client list speaks volumes for the quality of our lawyers and the experience they provide. From Hewlett-Packard to Krispy Kreme and property developers to some of the UK’s largest banks, we work with a growing number of the FTSE 250 and some of the world’s most exciting and ambitious growth businesses. Shoosmiths is a major UK law firm with a network of offices working together as one national team.

There’s no secret to our growth over recent years to become a £107m+ turnover firm. Clients love working with Shoosmiths people because of the way we work and the results we consistently deliver for them. You don’t have to take our word for it, many of our clients are happy to talk on our behalf – we’ve never been ones for banging our own drum.

We work to a simple formula: a can do ethos, values that are much more than words on paper, and the agility to find the best way for each individual client – whether that’s ways of working, pricing structures or just innovative ideas that make a real commercial difference.

Approved Accounting

Approved Accounting is a new breed of accountancy firm.

We are small, agile, and committed to achieving the highest standards both in terms of the advice we offer and the customer service we deliver every day.

We invest heavily in technology to ensure optimum efficiency, and we work hard to build long-term partnerships with our customers. This leads to extremely high levels of customer satisfaction and loyalty, the only measure by which we judge ourselves.
