We are Newton Venture Education Limited (“Newton” or “we” or “us”) and we organise, operate and manage events and programmes in the investment sector (including, but not limited to, investment in the early-stage, innovation economy). We are a company registered in England under company number 12899738. Our address is Phoenix Court, 2 Brill Place, Somers Town, London, United Kingdom, NW1 1DX. Our contact details are hello@newtonprogram.vc. If we have to contact you, we will do so by telephone or by writing to you at the email address or postal address you provided to us.

 

  1. THESE TERMS

2.1 What these terms and conditions cover. These are the terms and conditions that shall apply to the booking of such programmes as run by us from time to time (“Programme(s)”) by the person or organisation named as the payee on the application form (“you”).  The application form for each Programme (as linked at our website and set out below in more detail, “Application Form“) and these Terms (defined below) together form the contract (“Contract“) between you and us for your, or your employee’s or worker’s (if you are an employer paying for them to attend a programme) attendance on the appropriate Programme (once selected and confirmed following the Application Process) named in the Application Form. The Contract applies to the exclusion of any terms which you may seek to impose. If you think that there is a mistake in these Terms, then please contact us. 

 

2.2 Why you should read them. We strongly recommend you carefully read and print a copy of these terms and conditions before you apply for a Programme. These terms and conditions, together with the documents referred to in them, (“Terms”) govern the contract between you and us (and, specifically, in relation to your access to a Programme and post-Programme events if provided). They tell you who we are, how we provide Programmes, how you and we may change or end Programmes or the Contract, what to do if there is a problem and other important information. The Contract between you and us is enforceable once we have notified you that your application to attend a Programme has been successful following the Application Process (as set out below). 

2.3 Your agreement to the Terms.  By applying for a Programme, or accessing a Programme or any data (including, but not limited to, training material, examinations, documents, graphics, animations, text, images, audio files, video and interactive content) provided to you during the course of a Programme or supplied to you by us prior to or during a Programme (collectively the “Programme Content“), you will need to click on the button marked “Tick this box if you have read and agreed to our terms and conditions”. By clicking this button and completing the Application Process (as set out below) or, alternatively, when submitting the details for your Application Form over the telephone or via email, you confirm that you have read, accept and agree to be bound by these Terms and any other supplemental terms and policies we may, from time to time, refer to. If you do not agree with any of these Terms, you should notify us of the same immediately and you must not apply for a Programme, access a Programme and/or Programme Content, or attend a Programme. Subject to the other provisions of these Terms, failure to notify us immediately of your disagreement with these Terms may result in you only receiving a reduced refund. You represent that you are of legal age in your jurisdiction to form a binding contract, but in any event at least eighteen (18) years old.

2.4 Changes to the Terms. We may amend or change these Terms at any time to reflect changes to our business or changes in the law. It is your responsibility to review these Terms each time you apply for a Programme. The modified Terms will be posted https://newtonprogram.vc/terms-and-conditions/  and will be effective ten (10) days after posting, and your continued attendance at a Programme, or any post-Programme event(s), or any post-Programme networks or groups organised by us, if provided, or any part thereof thereafter shall constitute your acceptance of such changes. Please check the above webpage regularly for any changes to these Terms.

  1. YOUR BOOKING

3.1 Application Process. In order to participate in a Programme and / or access a Programme and Programme Contents, you must apply using the appropriate online application form for your desired Programme, found at the relevant link on our website (“Application”). Further information on the Applications can be found at https://newtonprogram.vc/vc-fellowship/ for the VC Fellowship, and for https://newtonprogram.vc/vc-fundamentals/ VC Fundamentals. Your Application shall be processed by our third-party partner, Be Applied Ltd (“Applied”). We may approve or reject your Application at our sole and absolute discretion. Submitting an Application does not guarantee participation in a Programme and the approval of your Application may be subject to certain pre-requirements, such as completing a test or meeting certain acceptance criteria, as may be determined by us from time to time (“Eligibility Criteria”). Further information on the Eligibility Criteria can be found at: https://newtonprogram.vc/program/. Newton reserves the right to change, and / or waive, any Eligibility Criteria, for any Programme, at any time and subject to our sole and absolute discretion. We and / or Applied (or such other third party partner as we may elect, from time to time, “Partner“) may send you confirmation of receipt of your Application but this does not constitute an Approval Email. Further information on the Application Process can be found at:  https://app.beapplied.com/apply/ur7g1etpee. 

3.2 Your Application.  All Programmes are subject to availability. We reserve the absolute right to refuse any application for a place on a Programme. Application Forms are assessed ‘blindly’ and Newton’s, Applied’s and any Partner’s (collectively, “Reviewers“) assessment of each Application Form is subject to the Reviewers’ sole and absolute discretion. Your application is not confirmed until we and / or Applied have confirmed your place by email.  A legally binding agreement shall come into existence once you have received a confirmation of selection and approval email (“Approval Email”) (upon receipt of which you are obligated to pay the Fees in accordance with these Terms).  If you pay for a Programme prior to us sending you an Approval Email, we shall refund such Fees to you if we subsequently do not accept your application. You may participate in a Programme only if and when you have received an Approval Email.    

 

3.3 You are responsible for checking your booking details. It is vital to check carefully the details of your Application prior to submission.  The Approval Email is issued based on the details of your Application and you must let us know immediately if any information appears to be incorrect or incomplete.  This email may be sent to your spam inbox so please ensure you check there too. If you need to cancel or change your Application details at any point after receipt of your Approval Email, you may have to pay amendment or cancellation costs, which may be as much as the total cost of the application for a Programme.

3.4 Changes to our offering. We may adapt, eliminate and alter our available Programmes from time to time.  It is your responsibility to check our website for full details of Programmes that are available, their cost and Programme Description.  Your rights in clause 7.1 shall apply if we make any changes to a Programme after you have received an Approval Email. 

  1. THE COURSE

4.1 Programme details. Programme details including (without limitation) details of training materials, networking etc. as well as the current fees for each Programme (“Fees“) are available on our website and may be updated by us from time to time (“Programme Details“).  It is your responsibility to check Programme Details. You will not be entitled to receive, and we will not be responsible for providing, any additional services to you that are not included in the Programme Details.  

4.2 Programme type. We offer two types of Programme: 1) an online-only programme (“VC Fundamentals“); and, 2) a programme which includes both an online and non-online elements, namely “face-to-face” training sessions (“VC Fellowship“).  You are responsible for selecting and submitting an Application Form for the correct type of Programme for you; your selected type of Programme will be as set out in the Application Form and the Approval Email (“Selected Programme“).  The Programme will take place as specified in the Approval Email to you, the Programme Details and / or any other information or materials we may make available, from time to time, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing. We will be responsible for the provision of your Selected Programme. However, we reserve the right for any Programmes (including, without limitation, your Selected Programme) to be partly or wholly performed by duly qualified third parties in our name. We are not responsible or liable to you if you cannot access a Programme or any Programme Materials due to your technical or IT limitations. Each Programme will begin on the date confirmed to you in the Approval Email.

All Programme Content for VC Fundamentals is accessible and available only online via our website. Each VC Fundamental Programme will last for approximately ten (10) weeks.

4.4 VC Fellowship. You will be granted access to the appropriate online Programme Content (for a VC Fellowship) via a hyperlink in an email approximately one (1) week prior to the start date of the Programme.

The dates, times, duration and Premises of the Sessions for a VC Fellowship (“Confirmed Sessions“), shall be as notified by us to you via email, to the email address you provided in your Application Form. We reserve the right to change or alter the date, time, duration and / or Premises for the Confirmed Sessions at any time, for any reason, on notice.

We may at our reasonable discretion and without liability or an obligation to refund Fees, refuse to register a participant for a Programme or may refuse to admit into a Programme (be it in person or virtual/remote), and may remove from a Programme, any participant whose participation in any Programme would, in our reasonable opinion, be undesirable or whose behaviour we reasonably consider is or may be in breach of these Terms.

4.7 Your responsibility to engage in your Selected Programme. Where a Programme requires the completion of homework / project work then it is your responsibility to ensure that such work is completed in the timescales required as advised by us. Failure to complete such work in accordance with our instructions may mean that you are not permitted to complete your Selected Programme.  We will not refund any element of the Fees in this situation.

 

4.8 Authorisation to use audio / visual images of you. By attending a Programme, you agree that we may use, reproduce, and / or publish in any way whatsoever (without any payment being due to you) any photographs and / or video / audio that may pertain to you (including your image, likeness and / or voice), and that we may licence others to do the same.  This material may be used (without limitation) in various publications, releases, marketing material, broadcast material, on the website or for other related endeavours.  If you do not wish to be photographed or recorded, please notify our staff prior to commencing your Selected Programme. 

4.9 Tagging on Social Media. By attending a Programme, you agree that we may (without any payment being due to you) tag and / or interact with you or your account(s) on different social media platforms.

For clarity, we do not provide any assurances, warranties or otherwise have any obligations in respect of the Network, its operation and / or maintenance. To access the Network you will need to create a password protected account. It will be your responsibility to retain your login details. Failure to do so may result in our refusal to permit you access to the Network.

  1. FEES AND PAYMENT 

5.1 Fees. You shall pay the Fees for your Selected Programme unless: a) a different price has been agreed by us in writing, in which case you will pay the agreed price, which shall constitute the ‘Fees’ for the purpose of these Terms; or, b) you have been granted a Scholarship (as defined below) to your Selected Programme by us, in which case you will pay the remaining difference between the original Fees for the Selected Programme and the amount granted to you under your Scholarship (and such difference shall constitute the ‘Fees’ for the purpose of these Terms).

 

5.2 Scholarships. We may grant scholarships to our Programmes from time to time, at our sole and absolute discretion, under which we may cover some of the Fees for your Selected Programme (“Scholarship“). If you would like a Scholarship, you must apply by following the process we set out at https://www.notion.so/newtonventureprogram/Scholarships-at-Newton-Venture-Program-e43f499762614375b1fe0623ae020e27

We may set out and require the fulfilment of certain criteria in order to qualify for a Scholarship, however fulfilment of such criteria does not automatically grant you a Scholarship; acceptance of Scholarships is subject to our sole and absolute discretion. Further information on our Scholarships is available here

 

5.3 VAT. Fees are advertised exclusive of VAT and other applicable taxes. If VAT is payable, we will add it to the value of the Fees. If the rate of VAT changes between your application date and the date we provide your Selected Programme, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for your Selected Programme in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

 

5.4 Payment of Fees. Once your application to attend a Programme has been accepted, you shall receive an email with a link enclosed therein to payment of the Fees by card. You can pay either by debit or credit card. Invoices are only provided upon written request.  If you choose to pay via debit / credit card by a third-party provider, you will need to agree to the terms and conditions of that provider and they will be responsible for all matters relating to payment and use of your card details. Fees for your Selected Programme are due on the date set out in the Approval Email, unless otherwise agreed between you and us. Please be aware that any failure to pay the Fees will result in you not being able to participate in your Selected Programme and / or post-programme events (if provided).

 

  1. YOUR RIGHTS TO CANCEL

6.1 No cancellation after access.  By viewing, downloading or otherwise accessing (in any way) a Programme or any of the Programme Content you waive the right to cancel your order for a Programme.

 

6.2 Changing your mind. Subject always to clause 6.1 if you are a consumer and you change your mind, you may cancel your booking for a VC Fellowship within fourteen (14) days (“Cooling Off Period”) and receive a partial refund of Fees paid, provided that you have not attended a Session. Once you have attended a Session, or after completion of the VC Fellowship, you cannot change your mind, even if the fourteen (14) day period is still running. If you cancel after you have started a VC Fellowship, we may (at our sole and absolute discretion) deduct from any refund an amount for the elements of the VC Fellowship you have been able to use or access, including (without limitation) Programme Content, or for any elements of the VC Fellowship you have attended up until when you told us you wanted to cancel. This amount will be in proportion to those services which have already been provided as part of the VC Fellowship, in comparison with the full amount of the VC Fellowship.  Other than as expressly set out in these Terms, you are not permitted to defer or delay any of your Sessions.

 

6.3 Changing your mind after the Cooling Off Period or if you are not a consumer.  Subject to these Terms and in particular clause 6.1, we reserve the right to follow the policy set out immediately below, irrespective of whether you are a consumer or a business:
