We were delighted to hear yesterday that our founder Jacqueline Hollows has been invited to join the NatWest Accelerator programme.

This programme lasts for six to 18 months and is targeted at entrepreneurs with high growth businesses looking to scale up. Designed to ensure that businesses get the best chance to succeed, entrepreneurs receive free office space, free WiFi, free business advice and mentoring, bespoke coaching, and access to the bank’s networks and supply chains.

To date, NatWest says its helped nearly 4,000 entrepreneurs through its various accelerators – with resident start-ups having raised £255m in cumulative investment and created over 8,000 jobs.

Jacqueline commented:

I think it is an exciting opportunity at this time as the vision is to grow and scale the business over the next 18 months giving me the opportunity to network with like minded entrepreneurs as well as seasoned professionals.  In addition to access to business mentoring and the banks supply chains I’m looking forward to the networking and collaborative opportunities.
