Innovation Challenges & Hackathons
Creating and supporting a range of early stage competitions, which assist entrepreneurs in idea generation and development, to access customers, often commissioned by industry partners.
Launched in May 2014, Fast Forward is a high profile EU backed joint venture between City University London and the Accelerator Network, providing coaching support from industry to aspiring entrepreneurs at the pre-accelerator phase.
The Accelerator Academy
The Accelerator Academy is an accelerator program for advanced stage tech startups (within their first year, seeking up to £500k of seed investment). Our program is well established - we run three semesters a year and have helped over 100 graduate companies prepare to raise £25m+ of seed capital.
The Accelerator Funding Network
One of the key challenges for accelerator programmes is consistently connecting entrepreneurial start ups with seed capital. Drawing on our experience in equity raising, we believe that applying professional broking resources to the startup market will create a more efficient process for early stage entrepreneurs.
The Accelerator Fund
The Accelerator Fund aims to bridge the equity gap for high growth tech startups helping them to scale more quickly through pre- and post-investment business acceleration
