The standard terms for taking part in the CRL Accelerator are for an option to take 3% equity in your business. This option is only exercised should your business gain sufficient funding and so will not be actioned in all cases. We should make clear that a portion of the support that we provide you is funded by the European Regional Development Fund and this is not connected with the 3% option.
During the six-month programme, we will work with you to develop your product, the final result will be a product that people love and can be made at the right cost.
We bring together experts on business development, investment preparation & market development for a six-month intensive programme designed specifically for hardware products.
Please do get in contact with our Accelerator Lead (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly if you have any questions about your eligibility. We have supported businesses at all stages.
