Through a programme of masterclasses, one-to-one Market Validation Sessions and events, its members learn how best to work with large corporations and better navigate the complexities of the corporate procurement process. Crucially, Momentum members have the opportunity to build a network of senior executives drawn from some of the world’s largest companies that are actively looking to invest in new technologies.

Smith & Williamson is working with Momentum to help take its members to the next stage of growth by hosting some of the masterclasses and events and sharing our expertise on how to scale a business successfully.

Our recent report - Dream Bigger: The scale-up moment – showed that nine out of ten businesses in the UK are eager to grow and at Smith & Williamson we are committed to equipping ambitious companies with the toolkit for sustainable success.

We champion the cause of entrepreneurs and growth businesses, deploying the services of our dedicated technology team that helps companies break through barriers they may face at each stage of their business cycles – from launch, to finding finance, restructuring for growth, leveraging international opportunities and exit. We are proud to partner with carefully selected, complementary businesses, providing support for our clients and delivering a broad network through which we can connect them to the right people at the right time.

Fergus Caheny, Partner at Smith & Williamson, said: “We are really pleased to have extended our relationship with Momentum Startups. Our excellent track record of advising fast-growth tech companies, combined with Momentum’s highly successful B2B growth platform, will create an unrivalled launch pad for growth.”

Rishi Chowdhury, Co-Founder and CMO of Momentum Startups, said: “Our partnership with Smith & Williamson combines two strong networks of startups, corporates and investors. We look forward to continuing our work with Smith & Williamson and bringing their expertise to the table as we endeavour to provide the best opportunities for our startups to rapidly grow.”
