Over the next 12-weeks, eight startups will take part in an intensive programme to help them to rapidly grow and scale their businesses. Each week the teams will learn about a particular aspect of running a successful company through seminars, workshops and one-on-one mentoring. All of which culminates in a Demo Day where they will pitch to a room full of investors and industry experts.
