Portfolio Company Application Form

If you're a female entrepreneur and would like Apropela (formerly Heads Over Heels) to put you in touch with industry figures who can open up their address books to kick start your ambition, then this is where to start!


The first step is fill in the form below. Our CEO Kate Harper will then get in touch to arrange a time for you to see us in action by attending a Portfolio Event. If you then decide you’d like to proceed further, you’ll be asked to provide some additional company information and then we’ll arrange a convenient date for you to meet our screening committee to explain the challenges you’re facing and what ‘Asks’ would be most useful for helping you achieve your goals.


If selected, we’ll then ensure that you’re able to present to a highly targeted group of Connectors.

Thanks for submitting!

Responsibilities and expectations of Portfolio Company CEOs:

The success of Apropela is based on the ethos of ‘support the network that supports you’. With this in mind, we’ve outlined the expectations we have for our Portfolio Company CEOs.

  • Attend as many events as possible, and seek to provide high-quality introductions to other Portfolio Company CEOs.

  • Give your time and expertise back to actively support others in the Apropela family.

  • Always act professionally and be both responsive and gracious when dealing with Connectors.

  • Reply promptly to requests for information.

  • Be an active ambassador for us and encourage anyone you know who’d could be a Connector to get involved.

  • Make yourself available for media interviews and presentations to our partners and supporters.

  • Display our logo on your website and LinkedIn profile.

  • Provide constructive feedback to us on your experience. What works well, and what doesn’t? We can’t get better without your ideas and suggestions!

  • We also hope you’d consider financially supporting us when you successfully exit, especially if you feel we’ve played a part in your success.
