Launch Lab Accelerator

An accelerator programme for City’s student and graduate entrepreneurs.

Launch Lab accelerator programme

The first three months will take the form of an accelerator programme. We ask successful participants to commit to engaging in up to eight hours of activity per week. The sessions will be scheduled from the week beginning 25th of October.

The workshops and mentoring activities will cover all aspects of growing your business. This will typically include everything from establishing the correct legal structures for your business, implementing marketing strategies, preparing for investment and refining financial models.

We will be bringing in the very best entrepreneurs and practitioners to help you on a practical level to help build your business and your skill sets. The more you engage with the activities, the more you will get out of the programme.

Following this, you will be able to stay in the Launch Lab for a further nine months to implement everything you have learned and begin to grow your business.

You will still have the opportunity to engage in an exciting programme of events, mentoring activities and shadowing opportunities designed to continue to support you. You will also be able to engage in a series of community events to share their tips and tricks, and collectively celebrate triumphs and help solve any challenges together.

One-to-one support

We are here to support you and make sure you have everything you need to develop and grow. We will arrange regular catch-ups with you and our team, to review your progress and help you stay on track. These catch-ups enable us to work with you to identify any additional areas of support you might need to reach your business goals.
