East Midlands NatWest Accelerator is now OPEN for applications

13 June 2023

The fully funded East Midlands NatWest Accelerator is now OPEN for applications for the September cohort.

Enterprise is an area that clearly defines NatWest. As the UK’s biggest bank for business, they understand that SMEs are the lifeblood of the economy and that have a responsibility to help them build back better.

At the heart of our support for business owners is our comprehensive Accelerator programme including coaching, insight and mentoring specifically designed to meet the needs of entrepreneurs who want to grow their business, regardless of geographic location or sector.

They provide successful applicants with wrap-around care, thought leadership, connectivity and access to shared workspace (in 14 UK locations or an entirely digital journey); all crucial for their success and a strong national economy.

Every business owner is different and the motivations for scaling a business can vary greatly. NatWest also recognises the power of being surrounded by a network of like-minded individuals and specialists. Developed over the past seven years, these programmes have revolutionised the way it supports entrepreneurs, and has proven to really work.


The programme starts with an IGNITION event w/c 11 September 2023 and extends over six months with fortnightly events, opportunities and monthly 121, peer-to-peer and group coaching sessions. There is an option to reapply for up to 18 months of support in total, with the first six months open to non-banked customers.

Applications for this intake will close on 18 August, interviews will take place throughout the entire application window. Places are limited.
