Applications are currently open to enter Elevator’s Accelerator Programme, a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs running their own early-stage enterprise to join the entrepreneurial elite - to challenge assumptions, investigate marketplaces, expand plans and mindsets, outline business models, identify opportunities and much more. 


But don’t just take our word for it - hear from four of the 25 entrepreneurs who are Founders of Cohort 2 on Elevator’s Accelerator Programme. 

Craig Buchan

Founder / Managing Director of Festiwall

20160303 Accelerator Profiles 38I can't speak highly enough of the Accelerator programme; my business Festiwall simply wouldn't be at its current stage after only 10 weeks without Elevator's strategic and challenging methods of business planning. I left my full-time job to join Cohort 2, if you're thinking similar for Cohort 3 then absolutely 100% do it!

Lee King - Founder 

20160303 Accelerator Profiles 018Elevator’s Accelerator is an amazing programme with immense strategic, business, networking and financial support. Every component of the Accelerator is geared toward ensuring that you successfully transition to the next phase and beyond. 

Fiona McIntyre - Founder - Greyhope Bay

20160303 Accelerator Profiles 6Elevator's Accelerator Programme provides a unique opportunity to be surrounded by other ambitious and inspiring entrepreneurs. Greyhope Bay benefited from what is an atmospheric and energetic space, the collaboration and dedicated support is second to none and has helped us push past challenges and move forward on our entrepreneurial journey.

Karin Ovari:

DSC 0018Being part of a Cohort of Founders is being part of an energetic family. Elevator's space is way cool, it challenges you and opens you up to opportunities that you did not know existed. Becoming part of the Accelerator program is not just local but global and a great kick starter for our entrepreneurial journey. I have gained clarity that I may not have otherwise discovered.

Elevator’s Accelerator Programme is not for the faint-hearted - it is an intensive adventure that can benefit you beyond your expectations if you engage yourself in it fully.
