Elevator's Accelerator Programmes: Why Should You Apply? By Accelerator Intern June Bunyan

June Headshot2Do you have a business idea with the potential for rapid growth? Do you have a passion for entrepreneurship and a desire to take your idea to the next level?

Elevator’s flagship Accelerator Programme is aimed at helping develop scalable business ideas with the potential for global success. The 12-week programme is dedicated to putting existing and would-be entrepreneurs through their paces, helping them to develop and refine their ideas with expert support and advice. The objective is to fast track the potential for commercial success, with an intensive programme to nurture and support entrepreneurs on their business journey.

Accelerator3Elevator's Accelerator has shown tangible benefits for those taking part developing their ideas - demonstrated by past cohorts who have gone on to achieve success after completing the programme. Recently, one of our past participants, QPal, secured a major strategic partnership with Visa in the UAE. Another Accelerator success story, EBar, recently spoke at Elevator's Making It Happen conference for entrepreneurs, giving their insight into what it takes to launch and sustain a successful business. Both examples and many more demonstrate the potential of the Accelerator Programme and how it can help turn a business concept into a success, with the potential to compete in global markets.
