At present, Archery Assault is based at the Marine Academy Plymouth, which is offering facilities for a single event each week. "In order for Archery Assault to achieve its potential, we would need to be capable of holding several events a week at two to three venues simultaneously. Projected demand would suggest this would be the optimal foundation for stable growth. In order to deliver the service in multiple locations, we need a reliable vehicle to transport the equipment to these sites. A second-hand panel van would meet our needs and we anticipate a suitable vehicle could be found for c.4,000 and insurance cost is estimated at 3,000. In addition, single venue hire costs 75.00 to 90.00 per event. Holding nine events each week would incur venue hire costs of 750.00 per week or 9,750.00 per quarter. A fund of 10,000.00 would therefore enable us to cater for multi-location events. However, as the events should be self-funding, we are not seeking funds for this purpose. Finally, we would be seeking finance of a further 5,000.00 to enable the purchase of additional equipment such as bows, arrows, face masks and targets, so as to meet the demand. To date, this equipment has been purchased via an Australian supplier, with items being delivered from USA, Germany and China. We are researching alternative supply arrangements - see Objectives, below. Total finance required would be 26,000.00, to get the business into a position where market penetration becomes a reality and real returns are possible. A grant of any size would help greatly but the exit routes we would propose to investors are: 1. After twelve months the business will commence repaying the loans and will complete this within a further twelve months. The total to be repaid will be the initial investment plus a margin to be negotiated; or 2. Investors will be offered shares in the company, reflecting their investment value. The company would then have the right to buy back those shares at a future date following a valuation of the company by an independent auditor". Various attractive sponsorship packages are also available, as listed below. Contact: Stephen Whitfield. Address: 6 Keppel Place, Stoke, Plymouth PL2 1AX. Tel.: 07739517327. E-mail:

Would you be interested in sponsoring a documentary about getting out of redundancy? The documentary will combine interviews, round-table conversations, specialist opinions and the journey of three candidates - and how they successfully got out of redundancy. It will follow Carolina Rodriguez and the candidates through their differing emotional and physical journeys. The goal of the documentary is to raise awareness regarding the need for the UK to build a world class programme for people that have been made redundant or are out of work. The continued importance of redundancy awareness and the incredible opportunities that come after it will be explored visually, as well as through the words of the candidates, who will go through a coaching programme with Carolina Rodriguez during the changing process. The programme makers will educate the audience about the importance of positive thinking and the need for a defined plan. The audience will gain an understanding of the possibilities and importance of embracing change in a positive way, whilst also seeing the power of newly acquired skills taught by Carolina Rodriguez. The producers are hoping that a sponsor will be interested in sponsoring this documentary. They see a synergy and connection that would be of benefit to a sponsor, by raising the profile of the sponsor's company to the community and to the sponsor's target market. They are requesting 4,000.00 in sponsorship and in return the sponsor will receive     participation in the documentary, with the sponsor's company/organisation having the opportunity to be part of the programme (round table conversations and specialist opinions)     an association as key players for the future of the UK workforce     company logo on all printed materials     company logo and link from the programme makers' website to the sponsor's website     acknowledgement of the sponsorship in all media materials (news releases, media advisories, etc.).

There are opportunities to develop an association with the London Society of Chartered Accountants and its membership through a partnership involving its top-tier and lower profile annual events, as listed below. By partnering any one or more of these events, the Partner will gain access to a number of benefits; for example, exclusive access to the database of the LSCA, coverage in the London Accountant, which claims a circulation of 36,000 per issue and post-event access to all attendees after each event. Access to the LSCA database, website and magazine have never been offered in tandem with the individual event benefits, thus giving the programme huge potential as a tool for generating new business leads and raising awareness within the finance industry of London, say the organisation.

This is an opportunity to get involved with a blog about tech, start-up businesses, entrepreneurs, leadership, management and marketing with a specific focus on London's Silicon Roundabout, but covering London, the UK and abroad when appropriate. "Haggerston Times covers events, profiles investors and companies, and offers informed opinion pieces about anything related to the above. It is irreverent and amusing at times, but also highly informative and offers genuine insight into the movers and shakers of the start-up and tech worlds. Many companies and investors are requesting and receiving coverage but to take it to the next level we need to bring sponsors on board! The blog has over 150 articles, a readership of 2,000 per month and is just six months old. Over the next six months we believe we can grow to over 10,000 - the audience is there. We want it to be the go-to site for entrepreneurs and techies to get the latest news and we have many ideas we are hoping to roll out over the coming months. Please get in touch and be part of the growth. Benefit by association and help to shape the future of the 'Silicon Roundabout' and investment in start-up businesses. Any business, however big or small, offering assistance to entrepreneurs and new business will reap serious benefits and enhance their reputation. Be part of the future of blogging!" Contact: Edmund.
