The NatWest Accelerator is looking to support the entrepreneurs, innovators, and disrupters of Brighton and the wider west and east Sussex areas. There are limited spaces available on their next intake - are you who they’re looking for?

Applications are officially OPEN for the October intake of the Entrepreneur Accelerator, a 6 month programme designed to support you in growing and scaling your business to the next level.

The programme comes with free desk space in our state of the art co-working hubs, dedicated 1:1 coaching, access to specialist mentors and contacts, and a great community of like-minded founders to share your journey with. And it’s fully funded… so there’s no cost to you or your business.
Pre-Accelerator is designed to give entrepreneurs the power to start, scale and succeed.

It is a fully-funded, quick-fi re, intensive eight-week course for early-stage entrepreneurs.

Who is it for?

Pre-Accelerator is for you if you have a great business idea that you want to bring to life or if you have just started a business that you need to validate.

How much does it cost?

Everything is fully-funded for you. All we ask is that you work as hard as we do to make the most of this opportunity to grow your business.

What is involved?

We concentrate on providing early-stage businesses with the best environment, digital learning and networks.


The course is eight weeks long but starts with an exciting, immersive, ‘Ignition’ event in one of our hubs and ends with a chance to celebrate
and swap experiences.

Digital Learning

We want to help early-stage businesses grow and succeed as quickly as possible, so we focus on giving our Pre-Accelerator entrepreneurs
the best possible digital experience with action-focused, intensive online training.


We’ll also help you connect with other entrepreneurs just like you and plug you in to the power of your local business ecosystem.
