Strengthen your business growth in 3 months!

A 12 week programme to help revenue generating startups validate every segment of the business and become investor-ready.  Delivered by The Accelerator Network, providing accountable acceleration to UK startups since 2008.

The programme’s mission is to support UK tech entrepreneurs at seed stage to scale and grow sustainably by providing business and growth acceleration, access to finance and access to markets through a wide and diverse range of experts, coaches and mentors.

Accelerator Academy is a part-time programme delivered  by The Accelerator Network to help founders validate and review each segment of their business, create an investment strategy and prepare for growth.

Delivered virtually, the programme targets ambitious digital entrepreneurs looking for structure to grow their business through training, mentoring, building investor readiness and access to capital.

Accelerator Academy is delivered three times a year, with up to 10 high growth potential start-ups selected each time, across tech sectors (often SaaS, marketplaces, B2B).

Once selected, each company is matched to an exited entrepreneur who will mentor the founder throughout the duration of the course.

When accepted into Accelerator Academy, you will be matched with an exited entrepreneur, who has created a tech business from scratch and exited it at a multi million pound valuation. Your mentor will advise and support you through the 12 week programme to catalyse your growth.
