The sixth Leicester Startups Accelerator begins this week with ten new founders joining.
They’ll undergo a twelve, rather than six, week programme of mentorship, networking and motivation. It concludes on December 8th with Demo Day, where a select few will pitch to a panel of experts and investors. The winning pitch will even be in with a chance of receiving up to £150k funding through SFC Capital (subject to terms).
So, let’s meet our latest cohort…
