Business Support

Lot 10 Business Acceleration

The Business Accelerator Lot will provide support in a different, more targeted and innovative way for companies at various stages of growth.  They will combine traditional teaching methodologies with guidance and mentorship. 

Evidence suggests that SMEs and entrepreneurs who engage with business accelerators benefit from the opportunity presented, leading to greater collaboration with other entrepreneurs and businesses that can yield benefits that allow the business to grow at an accelerated rate.

All Accelerator programmes under this Lot must be delivered over a maximum 6 month period. Each programme will accommodate between 10 – 15 participants. The duration and frequency of the programme is down to the supplier, but should be a minimum of 8 days face-to-face.

Topics covered under Business Acceleration are:

  • High Growth Acceleration
  • Pre-Start / Early Stage Acceleration
  • Social Enterprise Growth Acceleration                       
  • Creative Industries Acceleration

This support is jointly funded by Glasgow City Council and the European Regional Development Fund through Scotland’s European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) programmes.
