The Startup Academy is a free 10-week incubator programme for pre-start and early stage tech founders to help get their Startup Ideas off the ground. We understand the challenges entrepreneurs face and have tailored the Startup Academy to support common pain points that occur in the early stages of starting a business to include idea validation, testing product market fit, building waiting lists and mastering startup pitches.

Our cohort are supported through mentorship, on-demand content and independent learning materials via the Startup Academy portal as well as weekly peer-to-peer sessions. The programme culminates with a Showcase Day - an opportunity for the cohort to demo their tech and showcase their skills.
