BLA Cohort I Graduation

Blue Lake Accelerator celebrated our Cohort 1 Graduation earlier this week.

We are proud of the incredible progress the cohort of startups has achieved over the last three months. Blue Lake Accelerator was able to provide over 30h of Direct support. We were joined by 13 experts from the UK startup ecosystem as speakers and mentors. Additionally, our network of 13 industry experts offered 1-2-1 time to advise startups that are facing specific challenges, from Accounting over IP to Building Traction. As a result, we have seen incredible progress from all our alumni. They are Iterating their products, building traction and raising funds.

Congratulations to our cohort Startups:

Ourselves, we have seen that our unique individualised approach to startup acceleration really works. Through direct feedback from the startups, we know that they value and benefit from the honesty, openness and individualisation of the 12-week programme. These attributes are directly enabled by our focus on a few high-potential startups. Our seminar guests agreed that the format allowed for more intimate and direct discussions, to the benefit of both mentor and startup.

Stay tuned to find out how we will supercharge this approach for cohort two. APPLICATIONS OPEN!

The Blue Lake Accelerator Programme is part of the TEAM SY Project. TEAM SY is part funded by ERDF and delivered in partnership with Capital Enterprise and Barnsley Council.
