Launch Academy programme


Great mentors are a key component of the Launch Academy programme. Our programme focusses on supporting innovators preparing to launch new solutions into the marketplace. This can be a challenging period for entrepreneurs where clear guidance and know how is critical to reaching successful commercialisation. Our innovators cannot achieve their fullest potential without the experience and support from a cross-section of entrepreneurs, leaders and investors.

We are always on the search for new mentors – can you support our Launch Academy Programme?

  • Do you have the experience and want to give something back?
  • Have you been in their shoes and want to help?
  • Or perhaps you simply want to be at the forefront of brand-new technologies in an ever-changing world?

If so, we want you to get involved!

As a mentor you’ll guide our companies through the highs and lows of entrepreneurship; from building new commercial and business models, through to product selection and creating a sales pitch.  Many of these relationships continue beyond the programme, maintaining momentum as our innovators scale their business and secure investments and customers.
