Sustainable Accelerator has now raised over £800,000 on Seedrs making it the world's largest crowdfunded accelerator.

Sustainable Accelerator is now seeking up to 8 circular economy focused start-ups to invest into. Typically:

  • High growth potential with disruptive technologies and/or an innovate business model
  • Team of at least two
  • Ideally a validated minimum viable product
  • Investment will be at the £100k-£150k range with each stake negotiated on a case-by-case basis
  • Investment can be stand alone or a co-investment

Each start-up will participate in a one year programme where they will gain access to deep sectoral, practical expertise and hands-on guidance from the Sustainable Ventures’ management team – see explanatory video here. Start-ups will also have access to Sustainable Ventures’ range of services from grant writing, book keeping and tax rebates and to their broad network of investors, advisors and mentors in the sustainability space. 

They will also receive desk space in Sustainable Workspaces where they can share and collaborate with our wider sustainability community. Each company will receive critical early stage hands-on guidance to achieve key commercial and technical milestones, which will help them to achieve their next key funding milestone. Feedback panel sessions, one-to-one coaching, showcase events and ‘Fireside Chats’ evening sessions will feature heavily in the programme.
