King's20 Accelerator 3.0: Meet the new cohort!

Posted on 20/08/2018

The Entrepreneurship Institute are delighted to announce our third King's20 Accelerator cohort!

The group includes exciting ventures working on products and services in education, adtech, medtech and agriculture and retail.

Over 12 months, starting in October 2018, the ventures will get access to leading expert mentorship, investment opportunities, coaching, office space, and the opportunity to develop the leadership skills to succeed.

Our first two cohorts have made £2.6million in revenue and raised £3.1million in investment, creating 57 jobs in the process. Wow – time has flown!

Ed Halliday, King's20 Accelerator Manager said:

"We are proud and excited to announce such a talented cohort of ventures on this year’s King’s20 Accelerator. They reflect not only King’s ability to engage with top startups with significant commercial potential, but also, as our most diverse cohort yet, the university’s commitment to extending entrepreneurial opportunities to all. We can’t wait to start working with them in October!"

If you are an investor and interested in meeting our ventures, we’d be really pleased to see you at one of our investor breakfasts this year (you can register here) or if you'd like more information please email edward.halliday@kcl.ac.uk
