High-growth start-ups invited to join Accelerator Academy’s eighth semester

Final call for entries for leading 12-week London accelerator programme

Farringdon-based tech and digital start-up incubator the Accelerator Academy has announced the final deadline for “ambitious” digital entrepreneurs to apply for the latest round of its 12-week mentoring programme.

Running for its eighth semester, the Accelerator Academy looks to develop high-growth early-stage businesses in the technology, mobile and media space, by offering a package of support which includes training, workspace within its ‘Innovation Warehouse’, and access to finance via an investor day where the participating graduates pitch their ideas.

Backed by venture firm White Horse Capital, the accelerator scheme has already helped to support 64 businesses and has provided over 750 hours of training, with 81% of its graduates having gone on to receive investment, including online language service Fluentify, which recently closed $410,000 angel investment.

Entrepreneurs are invited to submit their business plans by midday Sunday 20 April, with the eighth Accelerator Academy semester taking place from Monday 28 April.

Ian Merricks, Accelerator Academy founder and managing director of White Horse Capital, said:

“We developed the Accelerator Academy because we felt that there was something missing from existing incubator programmes – and here we are three years later, approaching the eighth semester of high growth mentoring and training.

“The high calibre of businesses and entrepreneurs coming through the programme is testimony to the dedication and work of our mentors, all exited tech entrepreneurs, who have been instrumental in making the Accelerator Academy such a success.

Building a website for your business idea is easier than you might think. Our online tool ranks the top website builders that offer free trials.

“We are looking forward to reading applicant business plans and are excited to get started with the next semester of entrepreneurs.”
