When we think about startups,

we think big

If you’re an entrepreneur with a big idea, the High Potential Startups accelerator programme will help you to bring your idea to life, bigger and better than you can alone.

We’ll help you test your idea, understand customers, fill skills gaps, explore how you can access finance and find co-founders.

Find out more by taking a look at our FAQs and eligibility criteria – then if you think it’s for you, let us know by completing the short form at the bottom of the page. We’re particularly looking for entrepreneurs who have a digital tech product they would like to bring to market.

If you’re an existing business owner, High Potential Startups can help you to encourage intrapreneurship in your business – encouraging employees to operate like entrepreneurs whilst still working for your business can be a great way to enter new markets and develop new products.
