Need some support to validate your startup and get investor-ready? The Raise Spring Accelerator programme is open for applications and will give you just that!

If you’re interested in building an investor ready startup and would prefer to accelerate faster and work with an experienced team rather than going it alone, take note!

dont-go-it-alone-2The Raise Spring Accelerator programme is once again open for applications and would like to hear from you! Based in Belfast, the Raise Accelerator Programme works with a range of startups across Northern Ireland, Ireland and the UK, aiming to equip startup founders with the tools and knowledge they need to take their startup to the next level.

The new improved programme has two stages; the first stage runs for 8 weeks and provides founders with that all-important introduction into startup culture, business foundations, technical product, sales, marketing, finance and investing. During this stage each participating startup will be held accountable for leading their startup forward.

The best 6 startups will then be selected to move onto the second stage where they will work on a deep dive on each of the aforementioned areas in addition to receiving 1 2 1 bespoke advice. At this stage Raise Ventures will ask for a 6% equity shareholding in each of the 6 participating companies.

Jenny Ervine, CEO of Raise Ventures explains:“ As we celebrate 3 years of the Raise Accelerator Programme we have identified there is a real opportunity to help a range of startups in our new improved programme.

For the first 8 weeks, we are open to startups joining to learn and take their business to the next level with a focus on strategy, funding and commercialisation For the second 16 weeks, we are excited to then select the 6 companies that we can work with on a bespoke level to focus on building a team, growth and investment.”
