Back in March we waxed lyrical about how MassChallenge, the World’s largest start-up accelerator and competition, was coming to the UK. 

Now with baited breathe we can reveal that the UK version of MassChallenge (in its inaugural year) has selected 90 startup finalists for their London cohort, who will be based at the rather fabulous new space at Tobacco Dock (It actually is rather fabulousTobacco Docks - we’ve seen it).

The Mass Challenge UK Finalists were shortlisted at the same time as their MassChallenge Boston counterparts with 128 startups attending the US version of the programme.

MassChallenge 2015 finalistsThe refreshing accelerator programme, which takes zero equity, provides entrepreneurs with free resources and opportunities to help them succeed including mentorship, office space, in-kind products and services, and access to a global network of resources and support.

This year’s class (US and UK combined) was selected from more than 2,200 applicants coming from a diverse range of industries and geographies, with the UK program’s top startup categories including internet & web services, enterprise software and hardware.

The Accelerator will now kick off in June and run through to October 2015 with a chance for the startups to compete for a share of £500k worth of non-dilutive cash prizes, which will be awarded to the companies showing the highest impact and potential, with a top prize of 50k on offer!

We look forward to reporting back on their progress and here’s a handy link for the full list of MassChallenge UK finalists - High-5’s all-round!
