The Springboard Internet of Things Accelerator

Startacus RSS

by Startacus Admin

The latest springboardinitiative from Springboard, the UK based accelerator programme has just been launched and is pretty unique in that it is the world’s first ever accelerator bootcamp which is specifically targeting the ‘Internet of Things.’

The bootcamp which is now open for applications will see 10 startup businesses working in any area of the ‘Internet of Things’ undertaking an intensive 13 week development programme where they will be mentored by over 100 industry leaders from all around the world.
You don’t need to be an established startup to enter however - if all you have at this stage is a bright idea, you’re eligible to enter.

And if you’re lucky enough to be accepted, it’d certainly be worth it. The programme will provide an incredible opportunity to fast track your idea to market. Not only that, but also all participating startups will receive seed capital of more than $150,000 as well as whole host of other benefits including free office space, free web hosting and legal services.
At the end of the 13 week programme there will be an Investor Day during which each of the startups will be required to present their innovations to an audience of Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors.

The Springboard founders are pretty confident that this initiative is going to see some really innovative and disruptive business ideas coming forward and with the undoubted rise in ‘maker’ culture in the last few years, who can blame them.

If you’re interested in applying, you can do so up until 6 January 2013 and the good news is you can come from anywhere in the world - the only stipulation is that you and your team must be able to work legally in the UK for the entire duration of the programme.

Enter now by visiting the Springboard site. And one more thing...Best of Luck!
