Leicester Startups CIC

Two programmes which might be for you if you have been trading for less than 36 months and are working on a scalable (high growth) business model.

Below is a brief description of these programmes. Your Business Gateway Adviser will discuss if they are suitable for you.

Accelerator Programme

Through the Leicester Startups Accelerator a selected cohort of founders (including first-time entrepreneurs) will go through a structured 6-week programme of workshops, round tables and mentoring. The programme is a mix of 1-2-1 mentoring, classroom learning and independent working, tailored to your start-up’s unique needs.

You will learn about:

  • Customer experimentation

  • User experience (UX) design
  • Revenue modelling and pricing
  • Business Growth/marketing/hacking
