Springboard is a mentorship-led accelerator program for startups based in London and Cambridge.

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

Springboard is a product of our learning from other game-changing accelerator programs (specifically Y Combinator and TechStars in the US) and adapting them to fit an international environment.

Historically, over 50% of the starts up who enter these programmes have succeeded in raising capital in the next round of funding.

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 London or Cambridge 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.
