Peter Duffy founded Muscle Owl, an online media and campaigns channel dedicated to changing attitudes towards disability, in 2014.

Although Muscle Owl has already produced over 50 podcast episodes, it has never received any funding. Peter and his co-editor Michaela would like to develop and raise awareness of the organisation, allowing it to reach more people and offer more diverse and informative material.

Robert Allen has worked in business development for over 10 years. He has extensive commercial and non-profit sector experience, having been Director of South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and Director of Partnerships at a Crewe Housing Association. Robert believes that established business accelerator and incubator models (both public and private) focus solely on a small elite number of start-ups, early-stage, growth-driven companies, excluding would be entrepreneurs from less well-off social and economic backgrounds who have no or low incomes. He wants to design and deliver a radically inclusive start-up accelerator / incubator for people with no or low income and create a social movement that builds sustainable businesses, one that embraces alternative finance models, delivering social and economic change and ultimately bringing inclusivity to start-up ecosystems across the UK and beyond.
