One of the UK’s top angel-led accelerators raising for its London programme in September 2016.
Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
This is your opportunity to invest in each of the companies participating in Ignite’s London accelerator programme, which starts at the end of September 2016. We intend to select 9 or 10 companies to participate in this cohort.
Founded in 2011, Ignite has delivered 9 accelerator programmes, investing over £2m into more than 80 companies. We are now fundraising for our 10th programme which will be investing in early stage startups in London in Q4 2016.
Backed by one of the most experienced and active group of UK angels, our programme features a strong network of mentors and investors that gives our startups an unfair advantage.
We are passionate believers in investing primarily in strong teams who have industry experience and who are looking to change the way that a market operates. Our experience over the last 5 years shows that we can help strong teams to deliver innovation that is potentially world changing by helping them refine their proposition and introducing them to the right mentors and investors.
The total amount of the fund that we are aiming to raise for this programme is between £288,000 and £320,000, depending on whether we select 9 or 10 companies for the latest cohort. After the success of the Ignite campaign on Seedrs earlier this year we wanted to make sure that we opened our next programme up to the community again.
