Description

Business accelerators help early-stage startups take off in the best conditions. They can offer small amounts of funding in exchange for equity as well as mentoring and partnerships. The format is generally cohort-based with a fixed duration that often ends up with a public pitching event or a demo day.

Good accelerators provide fundraising opportunities, workshops and curated resources. They make you a part of an ecosystem with mentors, corporate partners, investors and alumnis.

The most famous accelerator is Ycombinator in the US. They have had great success with previous graduates such as Airbnb, Dropbox or Stripe. Every year the number of applicants has been growing and made it very difficult to get accepted. But there are lots of other accelerators that can help you grow your startup.

In the UK, we mainly see 3 types of accelerators: corporate accelerators, university based accelerators and startup studios / incubators.

Corporate accelerators

Corporate accelerators are backed by large organisations that are using the structure to nurture fast moving teams that are a lot more agile than themselves. These accelerators are often narrowed down by sector so your startup will need to match the required criterias.

Once you get in, you’ll get an extra boost to your startup with easy reach to partnerships with the organisers. This can be extremely handy in compliance heavy sectors such as fintech.

University based accelerators

These accelerators are created to entertain eco-systems and grow innovation parks. Budgets are granted every year to make a link between academic research and the business world. This effort has become very powerful recently in the healthtech/biotech space but also throughout industry type businesses.

We’ve also seen great partnerships come out in anything to do with energy.

Startup studios

Startup studios (business incubators) also help you grow your business but will be a lot more hands-on. Often set up by previous founders, these studios will share services across all of their investments (think accounting and HR). It’s not rare to see studios come in as equal partners or more. Studios are often cross-sector but with a common business model such as SAAS products or marketplaces.
