If you’re a web tech startup and you’ve got big ambitions about where you want your business to go, then you’d do well to take a look at the Oxygen Accelerator. Especially since there’s just over a week left to apply! Here’s a few of the basics:
The Oxygen Accelerator is a 13 week programme during which 10 successful applicants will see their business ideas being tried, tested and developed with the aid and support of an extensive team of mentors and advisors. The programme culminates with a series of investor days where startups can pitch their ideas in order to get that critical next stage or follow on funding.
Of course it’s not just about the funding, nice though that is! It’s the mentoring support that’s even more invaluable. Participants will get get access to a huge network of business support advisors and mentors who can all give practical tips, advice and technical know-how on taking that idea to the next level.
Add to that the initial investment of €7,000 per business founder ( up to a max of 3 founders), the potential $500,000 of perks for each team and the fact that you’d be based in Google’s Campus London collaborative co-working space for the duration of the programme and you can see why this is an accelerator not to be missed.
Interested in applying? Time to get moving then since all applications must be submitted by August 23d! It’s expected that the programme will run from October to December with a business demo day planned for mid January. An exciting autumn/winter awaits for 10 lucky startups...
