Businesses and employers


Starting a business when you finish university is a great way to take control of your future – and our business incubator, Accelerator, provides you with all the advice, support, networks, knowledge and resources you need to get started.

Based off-campus in the heart of London’s Tech City in Shoreditch, Accelerator has helped to launch student businesses including Arctic Power Berries, Melting Pot LDN, Dottore LondonYoung Pro Magazine and Dancing After School.

What exactly does Accelerator offer?

There are a number of Accelerator initiatives you can get involved with through the year. They include:


Delivered in one-day sprints over 10 intensive weeks from June to September, Launchpad gives passionate students and graduates the knowledge, tools and support needed to fast track an idea into a viable startup venture.

The Big Idea Challenge

This idea and pitching competition sees students compete for prizes across three categories (Commercial, Social Impact and Creative).

Market Days

Here students can gain real world experience selling their own products at a busy London market.
