Start-up Visa Endorsement
Writing a business plan that proves your startup meets the Innovation, Viability and Scalability criteria is very difficult and can take a very long time unless you use this 30 minutes Business Plan template
How well you have researched and written your business plan is directly connected to the quality of your Start-up Visa Endorsement Letter.
If you want the UK Immigration Decision Maker to approve your Start-up Visa application quickly, then we will need as much evidence as possible.
Endorsement criteria: Start-up
Our endorsement letter must confirm we have assessed your business plan against the following 3 key Start-up Visa criteria:
- Innovation: Does the applicant have a genuine, original business plan that meets new or existing market needs and/or creates a competitive advantage?
- Viability: Is the applicant’s business plan realistic and achievable based on the applicant’s available resources? Does the applicant have, or is actively developing, the necessary skills, knowledge, experience and market awareness to successfully run the business?
- Scalability: Is there evidence of structured planning and of potential for job creation and growth into national markets?

Virtual International Accelerator
The Virtual International Accelerator (VIA) programme is designed to support you over 2 years to reduce the likelihood that your new UK business will be one of the 95% of startups that fail.
You can see the common mistakes almost all first time Entrepreneurs make that lead to start-up failure here.
If your business plan is not designed to prevent these mistakes and your business fails (or fails to meet the Innovator Visa Criteria), you will lose your UK Start-up Visa and have to return home.
