CRL’s Accelerator Programme
We hope you’ve heard that we’re once again open for applications to our specialist, hardware Accelerator programme! Part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the 6 month, London based programme supports the next generation of product-focused entrepreneurs, helping them to develop crucial areas of their business to help ‘accelerate’ growth and production.
For more information, and to apply please visit: http://www.centralresearchlaboratory.com/accelerator/
As part of their involvement in the programme, successful entrepreneurs will receive:
* a start-up grant
* access to our specialist prototyping facilities
* support from our in-house product development team
* dedicated sessions with a large range of industry experts
* direct connections with manufacturers and support to raise seed funding
Businesses that have found success through previous rounds of the CRL Accelerator programme include Aceleron, JOTO and Mimica Labs. These companies have gone on to raise substantial investment, and their founders have been recognised through entrepreneurial awards.
Ventures currently on the programme include innovative charging solution Waalflower, high-end furniture designer Animaro, eco start-up Chip[s] Board as well as Ignius, a tracking device to keep women safe when walking home, and innovative smart-glasses designer Gilassi.
Applications to the Accelerator will remain open until midnight 29 July. If you have any specific questions on the programme, or would like a tour of our space, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
