The first two companies in our Accelerator cohort have both come up with products that make it easier for people to do what they do best.
Assemble.fm have a digital platform that will allow teams of tradespeople in the field to track each other and communicate in real time, which in turn improves productivity, efficiency, profitability and customer service.
The LandApp is a platform that allows land agents, land owners, housing trusts, etc., to be able to view who owns what land, what grants are available for improving the environmental aspects of their land, plan projects, see the topography of the land and more.
Our primary focus when looking at applicants for the Acceleration programme is that they have:-
- A top notch core team with resilience, ability to learn, ability to act upon advice
- A great idea with defensibility, that targets the right audience with the right marketing message
- A realistic valuation of their company, along with a realistic expectation for funding
- An appreciation of an investor’s point of view, and what they want to see from someone they will invest in
