The Collective Accelerator was a 3 week programme for creative startups.

It was designed specifically for creative businesses. Applicants needed a clear business idea, and the passion and dedication to drive it forward.

  • Better business models give you freedom. The intensive course will was introduced to create an understanding of how different business ideas and business models fit together, and how some hold us back while others free us to do more creative work. Crucially, students were also prepared to make a professional pitch before a board of expert business leaders for a loan of between £5k – £10k. 
  • Practical know-how from founders who’ve been there. We utilised our network of contacts who range from international tech connoisseurs to high-end creative business owners. Through a mix of workshops, specialist talks and mentoring, these people will share their know-how and help you build your network.
  • A programme designed to plug into your existing work. It was intensive but applicants had time for their day-to-day work, and every aspect of the course was designed to move a business forward.

Successful applicants became Collective Members, with free access to our hubs and ongoing start-up support from our dedicated team. Loans would be free for up to two years.
