What we stand for 

Our goal is to take small companies and help turn them into the next big thing, companies with ideas that will change the world.

We seek out the best early-stage tech start-ups and through our support, network of contacts and our 12-week Dojo programme we accelerate their development with extensive training, guide them through start-up obstacles and provide access to investment funding rounds.

We remove the hassle of starting a company so that our entrepreneurs can focus on their technology solution and can therefore iterate quicker and achieve faster growth and traction. Additionally, we support, advise, guide and introduce our start-ups to Mentors to give them the best opportunity to succeed, and to succeed fast.

If you are an early stage start-up and are interested in joining our incubator programme please click the ‘apply’ button below.
