2 – Build relationships

Accelerators are often characterised by their cohorts, a group of selected companies that have the opportunity to work together and learn from each other. At MSIP, our cohort will share an ambition to grow, to make a difference in sustainable mobility and be willing to work collaboratively.

3 – Access wider networks

Business can often benefit greatly from talking to the right person at the right time. Through the MSIP Accelerator you will be become part of the wider MSIP ecosystem of entrepreneurs, partners and support agencies that will open doors for you to reach your ambitious goals.

The team behind any company is its most valuable asset with each individual bringing something unique and enabling the team to succeed. During our programme your team will have the opportunity grow and learn, enhancing it’s performance and capabilities at the same time.

7 – Don’t be restricted by a global pandemic

Whilst we would love to have our next MSIP Accelerator cohort to be based at MSIP, we know that this just isn’t possible at the moment. You can still benefit from the unique vision that we have at MSIP by opening your minds to participating virtually.

8 – Technical support

Many Accelerator programmes provide access to specialists and the MSIP Accelerator is no different. Delivered by Elevator UK and with support from Ricardo and Productive, MSIP’s Accelerator provides access to technical know-how which can help you accelerate your product and manufacturing development.

Participating in an Accelerator programme can be hugely beneficial to companies at the right point in their growth and development, helping them to refine their vision, value proposition and ultimately helping them to achieve their ambitions.

If you are a truly ambitious company looking to take the next step in your growth journey and you are prepared to make the investment in the Accelerator programme then we would like to hear from you. In return we will help you to gain a deep understanding of the development, commercial and marketing pathways required to ensure your success.
