What is Accelerate?
Our Accelerate Network is a free resource for entrepreneurs offering access to business expertise and peer to peer learning.
Accelerate supports enterprises from start-up through to scaling. Entrepreneurs invited to join the Network benefit from learning and networking events on topics affecting them every day. If they choose, they can be matched with a business mentor who provides long-term 1:1 support.
In 2012, 160 entrepreneurs took part in Accelerate learning events and 93% said participating would improve their performance. Feedback from learning events such as Pitching to Win, demonstrates the programme’s real-time benefits.
Participants are identified through a number of not-for-profit organisations that EY already works with, including The Prince’s Trust, UnLtd, Bright Ideas Trust, Social Business Trust, Teach First and the EY Future 5 winners, who are selected from winners of the Striding Out’s Future 50 awards.
