Investor looking for food entrepreneurs

Are you a budding chef that would like to trade at Tribe and turn your idea into a reality, but don’t have the financial capital to get started?

We are seeking a start-up street food business to receive investment to do so.

A local businessperson contacted us recently, asking to invest in a start-up street food business at Tribe, so now is the time to step forward if you have a dream of running your own food business but are lacking the confidence and funds to ‘go it alone’?

The investor is looking for somebody with the drive, skills and ambition to start trading at Tribe asap, and will provide financial support as well as ongoing mentoring if required.

They want to be a silent partner, with a negotiable stake in your business, and buy into Tribe’s vision of incubating new businesses until you’re ready for the High Street.

The investor has a small portfolio of hospitality, technology and property businesses across the North of England, and mentors numerous start-ups and entrepreneurs.

They said:The common denominator with the people I work with is lack of access to capital. There’s talent and ambition everywhere I look. But opportunities are few and far between. I’m looking for a long-term partnership with an individual to create a unique, quality brand that starts at Tribe, and grows to its potential. I want somebody with good ideas, thinks outside the box, is an amazing chef and believes in themselves and their potential. I’m not looking for the finished product – just the spark!”

Application form

To apply for this opportunity, please complete the form below:


Don’t worry about crafting the perfect application – just be yourself.  Everybody has a past, and the investor is open to people from all backgrounds, experiences and age groups.

Successful applicants will be invited to a Dragons Den style event, where they’ll meet the investor and the team to present their concept.

Emmanuel Lorenza, Site Manager, Tribe Carlisle said:

This is a fantastic opportunity for a creative and like-minded individual to join the Tribe family – all tenants have had continued success since opening at August bank holiday weekend with a range of demographics. It really shows how strong our concept is, and that investors are proactively contacting us to support the next generation of local entrepreneurs. We’re also here to support your business from a grass roots level with in-house marketing, promotion and PR, so don’t miss out on this opportunity if you’ve got an idea that you want to make a reality!”
