Springboard is a mentorship-led accelerator program for startups.

We provide seed capital, office space and – most importantly – that magical ingredient of “smart-community” with mentors and other entrepreneurs.

Springboard comes in the shape of an intensive 13 week programme.

What we’ve learned is that at the heart of Springboard should be the exchange of experience, advice, know-how and counselling provided by over 100 great mentors including experienced entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

Alongside this we provide each founder with £5,000 (up to a maximum of three founders per startup). The founders move to Cambridge or London for the 13 week programme where they receive intense mentoring and business support.

Springboard culminates in an Investor Day where the teams get to present to venture capitalists and angel investors.
