Elevator's Accelerator Programmes are geared to assist ambitious early-stage business owners, entrepreneurs, founders and teams to improve their business offering, growth and investment potential at an accelerated rate.
In Summer 2018 Elevator will dedicate the Dundee and Aberdeen Accelerators to Students, recent Graduates and University/College staff:
Participants ('Founders') undertake an intense 12-week (or 8-week) entrepreneurial experience to test, research, develop, launch and refine a product or service-led business to become pitch and investor ready.
Elevator's Accelerator Programmes cover different entrepreneurial themes each week from business models and goal setting, identifying new market opportunities, intellectual property, scale, growth and exit strategy. Founders are surrounded by cutting edge technology and continual networking opportunities.
Within the Programmes, our Team and complimentary Mentors and supporters challenge entrepreneurs, their goals, their plans and their business ideas.
