THE MODEL

SPONSORSHIP MODEL

At it’s core, Orbit is a Social Enterprise which combines Profit with Purpose.

All of our income is reinvested back into our work, and we have an asset lock in place ensuring that money cannot be transferred to non-business related accounts.

In short, Orbit exists to support tomorrow’s leaders and visionaries.

The Sponsorship Model

We’re proud of our sponsorship model and the impact that it’s having on Orbiteers across the UK.

We’ve kept the Orbit experience free for all schools and Orbiteers.

In this video, Orbit’s Founder Kieran Aitken explains how our sponsorship model works and the impact it’s having.

Orbit is a Social Enterprise on a mission to inspire the next generation to think bigger.

We’re not government funded, and strive to maintain our independence. Using this approach has allowed us to build programmes with support from real businesses and industry leaders. We’ve built a unique culture within our Gaffs, and we set our own benchmarks to measure our success against.

The Model

  • £1950 per Orbiteer, for 12 months of accelerator support and 24 months of post accelerator support.
  • Each Orbiteer can secure up to five sponsors. Each sponsor agrees to pay Orbit over a 36-month period.

Fees Per Sponsor

  • If an Orbiteer secures two sponsors, each sponsor pays £27.08 per month.
  • If an Orbiteer secures three sponsors, each sponsor pays £18.05 per month.
  • If an Orbiteer secures four sponsors, each sponsor pays £13.54 per month.
  • If an Orbiteer secures five sponsors, each sponsor pays £10.83 per month.

Sponsors include local businesses, parents, grandparents, and anyone with an interest in seeing an Orbtieer excel in the programme. 

100% of the money is invested in running and introducing new features to our programme. Nobody on our team takes fat dividends from the proceeds (we’re a Social Enterprise).

Investors in Orbit’s network provide £1500 upfront to Orbit which is invested into our Orbiteers and running costs. The investors are paid paid the full contract value (£1950) over the 36 month period to secure a return on their investment.

Orbiteers are required to secure two sponsors within the first two months of their stay on our programme.

Sponsors should have an interest in seeing an Orbiteer excel. Typical sponsors include, but are not limited to:

  • Parents.
  • Grandparents.
  • Local Businesses.
  • Neighbours.
  • Other Family Members.
  • Employers.

Sponsorship Price:

  • £27.08 per month, over a 36 Month Duration. 

Sponsorship Outcomes:

  • Sponsors are sent monthly “impact reports” on the progress of their sponsored Orbiteer.
  • Sponsors are given access to our workshops, online courses, and events with VIP visitors.
  • Each sponsor directly helps an Orbiteer to launch a business/secure a job, and receive the comprehensive training that Orbit has on offer.

Sign-Up Process:

  • Complete the below sponsorship form.
  • You’ll be sent an automated email with our sponsorship agreement attached which can be signed digitally.
  • Through WorldPay, the monthly payments will be processed safely and securely. 

Investors play a crucial role in our work, and support Orbit through providing upfront financing (discounting) which is secured against the total value of an Orbiteer’s Sponsorship contracts.

By providing upfront financing, investors can receive a ROI of 30%, and an APR of 19.5%. The investment is paid back monthly.

Furthermore, every investment contract signed helps to support our Orbiteers secure a bright future through the comprehensive support Orbit provides.

“An incredible experience. To sum it all up… Life Changing.”

APPLY TO BECOME A SPONSOR

Apply to sponsor an Orbiteer or invest in an orbiteer through the below contact form.

What happens if my sponsored Orbiteer leaves the programme?

In special circumstances, we will grant sponsors the ability to cancel their contracts if Orbiteers can prove that they are leaving the programme due to external factors outwith their control. Orbiteers are given a two month period to explore if they enjoy the programme before securing sponsors. When an Orbiteer joins the programme, they are committing to a full 12 month period of intensive support in our accelerator followed by a 24 month period of additional support outside of the accelerator programme.

Can I cancel my sponsorship contract?

When you sign the contract, you’re agreeing to pay the full  £975 over a 36-month period, in £27.08 instalments. As such, sponsors cannot cancel there contracts until the payments are complete.

What happens after my Orbiteer completes the 12-month programme?

After completing the 12 months of intensive support on the accelerator, Orbiteers receive a further 24 months of ad-hoc support which they can receive on their own free will. This includes additional mentoring, workshops, trips to Silicon Valley, and much more.

Who can I contact regarding sponsorship?

Contact info@weareorbit.co.uk and ask to speak with our Finance Director David Smith.

Where is the money spent?

The sponsorship money is invested into workshop delivery, Orbiteer travel expenses, digital training costs, VIP guest speaker fees, and operational costs.
