Our Programme

Try our Full or Express programme


Our Express Programme prepares you for Go-to-Market.

We kick-start our Express Programme with a clear understanding of your USP, customers, markets and competitors, leading to a recommendation of where your acquisition opportunity lies.

We then work closely with you to formulate a marketing plan, with a focus on digital marketing.

At the end of the Programme, you will have the answers to the following questions:

  • Who are your customers?
  • Why will they choose you?
  • Where will they find you?
  • What will they tell others about you?

Our Express Programme costs £999. Successful startups who completed the Programme can be automatically enrolled to our Full Programme and benefit from our PR and marketing capabilities.


If you have a great product, we will help it to take off.

Under our Full Programme, you will have YouShore Labs' full capabilities at your disposal from day 1:

  • Great PR: you get promoted by a rank of social media influencers with combined 0.5m UK followers who work exclusively with us
  • Extremely cost-effective and efficient traffic: we serve your ads directly to the major social media platforms, at a tiny fraction (10% to 20%) of the PPC cost you would anticipate to pay Google, Facebook or Twitter if you serve ads with them directly.
  • Expertise that makes a difference: not only can our mentors share their experience, insight and best practices with you, they will also work closely with you to shape your strategy, formulate a marketing plan which makes full use of our capabilities and help you to accelerate to the next round.

And the best of all, you get all of the above by partnering with us on a results basis.*

If you are a disruptive startup with a great product, we'd love to hear from you.

* Depending on whether your business needs revenue or exposure our investment offer will be made to you on either part equity and part revenue share basis or part equity and part pay per click basis

About YouShore

Delivering Powerful Insight from Social and Text Data

YouShore is a specialist company in Social Media Marketing and Analytics. Our proprietary engine combines the power of natural language processing, statistical modelling and artificial intelligence, enabling us to understand the (very slightly different) personalities of each social media user in extremely granular details. We currently work with Omnicom and WPP, two of the world's biggest adverting agencies, to help their corporate clients identify, acquire and analyse the target audience on social media.

In the past our capabilities had only been available to big corporations, such as telcos, supermarkets and holiday providers. With YouShore Labs launched on 1st June 2017, they are now also available to startup companies enrolled in our Full Programme.
