Scale-up businesses from across the South East and London are being urged to apply to join one of the leading accelerator hubs for entrepreneurs.
The NatWest Entrepreneur Accelerator in London has already helped hundreds of entrepreneurs from across all parts of the South East and London achieve national and international success.
And with applications now open for the next accelerator cohort, entrepreneurs are being encouraged not to miss out with the deadline for applications closing on February 17.
The NatWest Accelerator supports and empowers entrepreneurs to scale their businesses to the next level and specialises in complete wraparound support.
The free programme includes:
- one-to-one coaching with NatWest’s experienced Acceleration Managers;
- a programme of thought leadership and events;
- access to a network of like-minded peers, supported by NatWest’s Ecosystem Managers;
- focused support with access to experts from across your specialism;
- free use of NatWest modern co-working spaces including at the London Hub.
If you’re a business with ambitions to expand, the NatWest Accelerator programme could help. You may be looking to build your team, venture into new markets or seeking further investment. Whatever your ambitions, the programme could help you gain the knowledge, skills and contacts you need to scale and excel.
Crucially, the programme is free and participants do not need to give up any equity in their businesses to take part or bank with NatWest.
Current cohort member, Phil Steele, Co-Founder of GoJoe said, “When we started with the NatWest accelerator we were little more than two guys and a PowerPoint.
” Thanks to the coaching, mentoring and support that we’ve received through the accelerator we have now: completed two funding rounds which included professional athlete investment; created a product which is loved by the world’s best companies and assembled a team who will help us achieve our ambition of changing the way the world exercises.
“Quite simply, the programme really has ‘powered us up’, been our sherpa and catalyst for growth. A no brainer for ambitious start-ups.”
Piers Lawford, Scale Acceleration Manager for London and the South East said “This is a truly unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to accelerate their business with NatWest’s expertise and support. We focus on the key driver of any business – the entrepreneur – and that is what makes this programme different. Fundamentally, we help take your business further, faster.”
