Bright Ideas Accelerator: Launch & Validate Weekend

Accelerator Weekend: 23rd-25th June 2017

As part of our series of events linked to the Bright Ideas competition, we are pleased to launch our second accelerator style weekend! During Trigger, in January, we helped a number of companies form their ideas and now we will be helping attendees validate and launch their businesses.

Attendees at the 3-day boot camp will use lean start-up methodology to identify and test early customers, validate their business ideas and create a pitch deck that clearly outlines the business opportunity to potential investors.

You will;

  • Develop a viable business model for your idea
  • Decide possible revenue streams
  • Create a marketing plan
  • Discuss fund raising opportunities
  • Develop a pitch deck ready for potential investors
  • Meet high profile mentors and investors

Who is it for?

The Bright Ideas Accelerator is for anyone at the advanced stages of researching an idea, or at the beginning stages of trading. The programme has been designed to help you with a faster route to market, introduce you to mentors that can help you develop your idea, and help you raise funds for your start-up.
