Launch Lab Accelerator

An accelerator programme for City entrepreneurs

The Launch Lab runs a three months accelerator programme for startups – applications are currently closed but the programme usually runs twice a year.

The first three months will take the form of an accelerator programme where participants will be asked to commit up to 8 hours per week to engage with workshops and mentoring activities (attendance and engagement are mandatory for all participants).

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.

There will also be opportunities for you to engage in exciting programmes, competitions and activities designed to support you along the way. You will also be asked to engage in a series of community events and share your tips and tricks and help solve entrepreneurial challenges and of course, collectively celebrate your triumphs and achievements.

The team will be 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.

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.
