I am a start-up with a great product or service I want to talk to you about
Great stuff. Let’s understand your start-up a bit more. Firstly lets explain our process. We try and make it as quick and easy as possible so that we don’t waste each others time:
Complete the online application form.
V-Accelerator will get back to you via email in 1-2 working days if we believe that the idea is worth taking further.
We sign an NDA. It is not an onerous one but there are a lot of cool things happening in the lab that sometimes we like to keep quiet.
We will have a meeting in the labs and discuss it. If the initiative has potential, V-Accelerator will present the most appropriate business model for the initiative. This could be a model involving co-marketing, collaboration, venture funding or simply providing incubation space.
Depending on the nature of the relationship, V-Accelerator will allocate the appropriate resources to the initiative. This will be for a fixed term period.
Appropriate agreements are signed.
The initiative ‘graduates’ out of V-Accelerator. This means that the initiative leaves V-Accelerator as a product or service, ready for marketing, as per the commercial agreement.
