Nesta launch "Accelerators and incubators in the UK" report and database - 19 April 2017

Nesta has been working with BEIS, the UK Science Park Association and artificial intelligence software provider Synoptica to create a publicly available database of accelerators and incubators in the UK.

This database will provide entrepreneurs with valuable information about programmes and facilities to which they can apply. The findings from which will be summarised in the new report.

This event is specifically designed for policy makers, academics and incubator or accelerator managers to debate the most important insights from the new study and discuss what should be done to further support business incubation and acceleration in the UK.

Accelerators and incubators support young firms through the early and fragile stages of growth. This support can – in theory – increase survival rates and, in turn, has consequences for job creation, regional development, innovation and economic growth. 

Attend the launch on Wednesday 19 April 2017

Registration will open at 17.30 with the event starting promptly at 18.00. The event will close at 19.30 followed by networking drinks until 20.00.

This is a free event at NESTA offices in London - please register your interest here.
