The Pre-Start Accelerator is open to businesses across Wales that can outline an ambitious growth

strategy, with the aim of creating at least 10 jobs and turning over £2m, in its first three years. Applicants will also be assisted in identifying opportunities in international markets, with the aim of generating 30% of their revenue through export.

In addition to being based here at Welsh ICE, Wales’ largest innovation centre and co-working space, the Accelerator is also run in partnership with the Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme which is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
