A new government scheme which aims to tempt the world's best entrepreneurs has announced the first start ups to get a place.
Seven start ups have so far been accepted by The Sirius Programme, which include 19 young entrepreneurs from 13 countries.
Former professional New Zealand footballer Tim Brown was offered a place for his woollen shoe company.
He told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "It gives us a 12 month runway to work on this business... and allows us to work in London."
