Our fully-funded Academic Accelerator can take you there.
In partnership with leading academic institutions - University of Aberdeen, University of Dundee and University of the West of Scotland - this programme acts as a launch pad for those who have ideas with real potential but need support with making the business case.
The intensive, fully-funded 8-week accelerator is open to current students and recent graduates (within the last two-years), staff and academics together with academic and university spin outs.
Successful candidates will work closely with mentors and industry experts to test, research, develop and refine their ideas, taking them from concept to viable business plans.
A great idea for a product, service or business – whatever stage its at
Bags of enthusiasm and drive – you love a challenge
Commitment – you'll get the most from the programme by being present and engaged
A supportive, collaborative environment – you'll work closely with your cohort and Programme Manager
Access to expert advice and mentorship – via workshops, one-to-ones and dedicated guidance
The confidence to achieve your goals – transform your thinking and be ready to take on anything!
The following programme will run in June 2024 in Aberdeen, Dundee and Paisley/Lanarkshire.
