Meet the Ventures: King's Start-up Accelerator

18 ventures, spanning HealthTech, EdTech and Social Impact, join the King's Start-up Accelerator for 2024-25.

24-25 King's Start-up Accelerator cohort

The King's Start-up Accelerator (formerly King's20 Accelerator) is the Entrepreneurship Institute's (EI) flagship programme supporting the brightest and highest potential ventures from across King's College London to scale.  

Over the next 12 months, the ventures will participate in an intensive programme to accelerate their growth. They’ll have access to deep dives, practical workshops, expert mentoring, investment opportunities, coaching and the opportunity to develop the Seven Skills of an Entrepreneurial Mindset.

The new cohort is made up of King’s students, staff and alumni. Some are finalists from this year’s Idea Factory Competition and are also part of the EI’s Women Entrepreneurs Network.

Since 2016, over 140 ventures have been through the EI’s accelerator, collectively generating £83,573,446 in revenue, £100,527,150 in investment and employing over 1,286. This will be the first cohort to participate in the programme's new timeline - June 2024 - May 2025 - to leverage more opportunities within the investment space. 

I am delighted to welcome this year’s extraordinary King’s Start-up Accelerator ventures to the Entrepreneurship Institute and we look forward to working with exceptional founders over the next 12 months. We're extremely excited to be showcasing entrepreneurial greatness across three defined sectors ranging from HealthTech, EdTech and Social Impact; from founders, passionate to forge their own careers and striving to develop some of the most innovative solutions worldwide.”
