MassChallenge UK on search to find most ‘disruptive’ tech start-ups

Global accelerator programme is offering entrepreneurs the chance to receive a share of £500,000, alongside office space at its London HQ

MassChallenge, said to be the world’s biggest no-equity start-up accelerator, has officially opened applications for its 2016 UK start-up accelerator programme.

Running for its second year in London, the three-month programme will give successful applicants access to mentoring, free office space in London, education and access to industry experts.

At the end of the programme, competing start-ups demonstrating the most ‘impact and potential’ will be granted shares of £500,000 in no-equity, non-dilutive cash awards.

While all sectors are welcome to apply, particular emphasis has been placed on interactive media, life sciences, cleantech, fintech, and cyber security areas.

MassChallenge UK managing director, Kerry Ritz, said:“We’re looking forward to recruiting another incredible group of high-impact start-ups and stimulating regional growth in the process.

“Being accepted on the accelerator presents a significant opportunity for an early-stage company to propel itself along the road to business success. Our panel of judges are leaders in their field and world-class experts from a range of industries, so they know a start-up with the potential to succeed when they see one.”

The deadline for applications is 29 June, 2016. To apply click here.
