*The reason we ask for a brief video is to find out more about you, we don’t expect a full production and happy to receive a video which you’ve taken on your mobile phone, we just want it to express who you are as a person or team.
Application & Video Pitch*
Founders will complete an online application and should prepare a brief video introduction pitch about themselves. The application and pitch will be reviewed.
We review all applications received and will conduct a pre-screening initial review of your video pitch.
A detailed evaluation will be conducted to assess your suitability for the programme
After our evaluation, we will notify the founders if they have been selected to join the programme. Founders will be sent details of complete the registration process.
1. How long is the accelerator programme?
The program lasts 4 weeks. After that time, portfolio startups can stay in contact with the community and benefit from introductions where applicable to investors or later stage accelerators.
2. How is the programme delivered?
The programme is delivered online and through weekly office and mentorship.
3. Is the programme open to international founders and startups ?
Yes, our programme is open to international founders and startups, as our programme is delivered online we are able to open the programme to an international audience. To clairfy, all programme components are in English and working language in the accelerator is English as well.
4. What kind of founders/startups are you looking for?
All our founders/companies which are aiming to solve real-world problems using technology. We have a technology-agnostic focus. We want committed founders who are willing to listen to feedback and put in the work.
5. Do you take equity?, How much is the programme fee?
We do not currently take equity in your startup, and provide all of the support, coaching for the selected founders/startups, currently on a volunteer basis and are currently not charging a fee. There is an administration fee of £25
We subsidise the delivery cost in order to help you build something from nothing and make an impact.
6. What are the expectations in the accelerator’s programme?
Companies should be able to build the first version of their startup idea/Beta product during the 4 weeks program and ideally generate some initial real-world feedback/ traction. From our experience, the chances of producing a first version/beta MVP, being accepted into a further leading accelerator or raising initial funding are at their highest when the support that we provide, getting the startups ready, is combined with some initial real-world feedback/traction.
7. Do you guarantee any investment from investors or access to other leading accelerators upon admittance into the programme?
No. We do not commit or guarantee any investment from investors or access to other leading accelerators. Obviously, we can open doors to companies that belong to our programme and partners’ network, but founders need to be able to convince the relevant decision-makers themselves that you have what it takes.
8. Is the programme in London or remote?
The programme is remote and takes place online via video, you will require access to the internet and reliable bandwidth.
