Accelerators

Accelerators

Are you an entrepreneur with an early stage technology start-up? Accelerator Programmes can help you to rapidly build your business. Typically running over three to five months and focusing on rapid and intensive product development, Accelerator Programmes allow you to establish an investment ready start-up, and often complement the services offered by founder and technology incubators.

With concentrated, specialist mentoring, coaching and business support, the programme concludes with a final pitch to an audience of potential investors at which seed, angel or venture capital funding might be attracted.
