The ScaleUp Accelerator helps scaling tech (often B2B SaaS) UK companies prepare for strong growth and Series A funding. This support is delivered in a virtual setting in order to support scaleups during these unprecedented times.
The ScaleUp Accelerator has adapted its in-person growth and VC readiness programme to our current remote working practices, and as such has made all of its growth training keynotes, expert sessions, VC tips and mentoring elements, along with exited entrepreneurs live interactive online.
The ScaleUp Accelerator is the perfect combination of upfront intensive learning and long-term support, with 6 weekly half day sprints followed by up to 12 months of support until your deal is done. This enables CEOs and founders to develop a credible plan and investor proposition to raise their Series A and grow to £10m and beyond.
We support UK based tech companies who are currently at £500k to £1.5m net revenue and growing.
The ScaleUp Accelerator leverages nearly a decade of expertise by The Accelerator Network team delivering award winning programmes and our partner White Horse Capital being embedded in the VC community, securing over £350m+ of funding.

You will participate in weekly half day sprints of training and mentoring, with 12 months of ongoing support virtually. The format is live, with scheduled sessions across each sprint (half a day each week over 6 weeks) of interactive online sessions to participate in as a cohort, plus 1:1 video call support discussion for application of the learning into your scaleup.
This ensures you have a clear awareness of the activities that will help you scale, and attract the necessary growth funding.
The programme dives into the key areas of your business supported by experts and investors, plus 1:1 feedback on growth strategy, sales plans, marketing, legals and finance from some of UK’s leading scaleup experts. Thereafter, we continue to provide guidance on business plans and financial models, concluding with highly-curated virtual investor events.
Uniquely post-pitching is followed by comprehensive 1:1 support to help you structure and close your VC round. This will include pro-active investor outreach, qualification, term sheet negotiation support, and advice around the due diligence process through to a successful completion.
No upfront fees. No equity commitment. We are your exclusive fundraising partner, subject to a 5% contingent success fee on completion of Series A funding round (within 12 months of the last investor event).
