Want to build an investable, scalable tech startup? The Raise Accelerator programme is now open for applications and will help you do just that.

/slidebean-iW9oP7Ljkbg-unsplashRaise Ventures have opened applications for the next cohort of startups to join their Accelerator Programme. The Raise Accelerator is designed to build investable, scalable tech startups, supporting founders solving real-world problems with the commercialisation of their business, go to market and raising investment.

The programme supports startups who are creating a scalable technology solution, regardless of industry. With a founder-friendly focus and an expansive network of support, the Raise team acts as a trusted companion to founders through the challenging startup journey.

The Raise Accelerator begins with a 6-week sprint of startup fundamentals workshops, followed by a comprehensive 6-month programme that leads founders through their product development, launch and investment readiness.

The full 6 month programme includes workshops which are supported by 1:1 mentorship, mindset coaching and access to a wide team of trusted advisors across product, investment, strategy and growth.

Once prepared to raise investment for growth and scale, founders will be guided through a hands-on investment sprint and invited to pitch to angel investors and venture capital funds. Participation in the 6-month programme creates a partnership, with Raise joining the startup’s cap table with 6% equity stakeholding.

4Raise Ventures CEO Jenny Ervine said, “We’re looking for ambitious, resilient startup founders with a scalable business idea who are ready to build their confidence and skills to become investor-ready. Founding a startup can be a lonely journey, so we’re here to connect you with the right people and expertise that will make that experience an exciting and successful one and help you build the best startup you can.”

A recent graduate of the Accelerator programme said, “The knowledge gained has been phenomenal! I learnt more than I thought possible. I found the structure of the programme, access to calls and documents all intuitive and easy to process. Thank you for the opportunity to learn so much, to meet so many amazing people and engage in wonderful conversations. A brilliant community to be part of."

Programme participants will also enjoy full access to our Cathedral Quarter innovation hub for coworking and meeting space, complimentary and discounted access to resources including Hubspot, Founder Revenue Academy, Magic Sauce and Pitchbook as well as up to $350,000 worth of credits for developer tools including AWS and Microsoft.

Joining the programme will connect founders with a network of alumni to share expertise, learnings, connections and opportunities for collaboration. The Accelerator programme consistently delivers strong results, with alumni of the programme including BrokerIQ,, Armour and more recently, Budget Music Videos and Surkle. 8 companies within the portfolio have raised over £2 million in seed funding following participation in the programme.

Applications involve sharing a snapshot of your business and are open until 21st February 2023.

Best of luck to all who apply!
