Shojin invited to become next Revolut


We are delighted to announce that Shojin has been accepted onto the London & Partners Mayor’s International Business Programme, supported by The Mayor of London.  
The 12-month programme supports London-based scaleups to grow internationally. With no fee or equity involved, the programme offers unrivalled access to a whole host of workshops, events, trade missions and also a world-class mentoring scheme. 

Notable programme alumni include Revolut, Pavegen, Monzo, Olio, Bloom & Wild, Babylon Health and Checkout.com.  

“Congratulations and welcome to The Mayor’s International Business Programme," said a London & Partners spokesperson. 

“The programme is tailored to fit specific international growth ambitions. An exclusive programme, it provides a bespoke mentoring scheme, delivered by leading entrepreneurs and business leaders; expert advice and workshops; targeted trade missions and access to live leads and opportunities.” 

Shojin has been accepted into Cohort 24, which is for all four sectors (Creative, Urban, Finance, Business services & tech, Life sciences). Companies need to fulfil the following criteria to be accepted; Be London-based, have 10 to 250 employees, turnover - or have raised - over £1million per annum, and 20% year on year growth.

“This is a real accolade and achievement for Shojin,” said Jatin Ondhia, Shojin Co-Founder and CEO. 

“As a business owner, you get used to people or growth schemes over-promising and mostly under-delivering. The Mayor's International Business Programme is the single best piece of external support that a scaleup could need.” 

Companies join the programme in cohorts, giving a unique opportunity to collaborate and share knowledge with others in their sector. 

The programme offers:

  • One-to-one and one-to-many mentoring and ongoing guidance from entrepreneurs and business leaders
  • Focused workshops and events that provide the opportunity to learn from expert advisers 
  • Exclusive connections to top corporates in London and internationally through access to the corporates initiative 
  • Live leads for specific business opportunities in North America, Europe, China and India 
  • The opportunity to join high-profile targeted trade missions led by a team of international business experts 
  • A dedicated Trade Manager who will be Shojin’s main point of contact throughout our journey
