Raise Ventures launches summer tech startup accelerator

  • Applications are now open for this summer's Raise Accelerator programme, with 6 places available for NI tech startups.

    The Raise Accelerator programme is a six-month intensive programme designed to help tech startups to validate their ideas, accelerate their business, and raise investment. It's looking for founders with a startup business idea who want to scale to a large market, or founders with a tech solution for a clear problem who know their route to market, business model, and competitors.

    The programme is due to open again this summer despite the Covid-19 disruption, and is looking for six NI tech firms to join for six months. It consists of 12 weekly sessions on how to set up, run, and accelerate your business idea, plus bespoke support at each stage of a tech startup's journey. The scheme also offers desk space and meeting room access, in addition to administrative and IT support.

    Companies applying for the accelerator must agree to give a 6% equity share in their company in exchange for the six months of support. Applications for the Summer intake of the scheme are open now until Friday June 3rd. For more information or to apply to the accelerator programme, head over to www.raise-ventures.com.

    Jenny Ervine Co Founder of Raise explained: "Our accelerator programme is for the best disruptive and scalable start-ups. We are looking for 6 starts-ups for 6 months in return for 6% equity share. The success of Raise is directly tied to the start-ups. If the start-ups don’t make it then neither does Raise"

    Berne Omoalofe, CEO of Pryntd said "This is a forward thinking, very intensive program. We are learning everything we need to be a successful startup especially in a post pandemic economy we are about to emerge in the coming months and years to come."
