Sustainable Accelerator Fund

Sustainable Accelerator is delighted to announce the launch of the Sustainable Accelerator Fund.  We are seeking to create a cohort of the best start-ups in the sustainability space in London and are offering a unique combination of investment and practical hands on guidance from some of London’s most successful entrepreneurs in this space.  
 

Eligible Companies:
We are searching for early stage companies in the sustainability space deemed to have high growth potential with disruptive technologies and/or an innovate business model, a team of at least two and ideally a validated minimum viable product.   
 

Funding:
Each participating company will receive an investment ranging from £50k to £250k for an ordinary equity stake; a typical investment will be £100k.  Each stake will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis depending on the development stage and level of traction.  An investment can be stand alone or a co-investment.
 

Overview of Sustainable Accelerator programme:  
Sustainable Accelerator is a one year programme where each participating start-up will have access to deep sectoral and practical expertise and guidance from the Sustainable Ventures’ management team.  Start-ups will have access to Sustainable Ventures’ broad range of services from grant writing, book keeping and tax rebates and to our broad network of investors, advisors and mentors in the sustainability space.   Each company will receive critical early stage hands-on guidance to achieve key commercial and technical milestones, which will help them to achieve their next key funding milestone.  Feedback panel sessions, one-to-one coaching, showcase events and ‘Fireside Chats’ evening sessions will feature heavily in the programme.
