XPinnovates 1-day startup accelerator to take place on May 18th in Belfast

  • The XPinnovates 1-day Belfast startup accelerator programme will take place next Saturday May 18th at the W5 complex.

    Most business accelerator programmes push startups through 4-6 week intensive courses to develop their core business models and help with everything from raising funds to establishing market presence, but what if you don't have weeks to spare or can't take days off an existing job to put your new startup to the grindstone?

    That's where Belfast-based accelerator XPinnovates comes in, cramming all of that mentorship and knowledge building into a 1-day programme during a weekend. The event will be taking place next Saturday May 18th in Belfast's W5 science park, and aims to cram everything you need to start pushing your business forward into a series of slots from 9AM to 5PM.

    The event will feature startup workshops to help build your core business and market proposition, expert talks from startup founders, a pitching bootcamp, and an opportunity to pitch to investors. The businesses attending will also get to schedule one-to-one sessions with mentors, and meet CEOs and founders who have been through the startup process and successfully raised funds.

    XPinnovates has a portfolio of startups that its helped get off the ground over the past 12 years, having assisted companies in raising voer £15m in funding and run over 20 startup accelerators and incubator programmes. This event is aimed at new businesses in any industry, or even existing businesses that want to create a new product or innovation and want a boost bringing it to market. Tickets for the event are £55 to £75.
