Focus of fund/fund aims:
For start-up or developing business with ideas for urban transport, mobility or energy initiatives in Exeter
Exeter Velocities is a start-up accelerator offering support and funding for entrepreneurs with ideas to improve mobility and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. It does this through three programmes that focus on supporting the development of a start-up as it moves from idea to impact:
Nurture – an intensive three-month incubator programme of support and grant funding for start-ups and early stage ventures. Nurture offers access to mentors, training and a network to shape innovative concepts and ideas into a realistic business proposition
Advance – for developing businesses with a Minimum Viable Product that need expert advice and capital investment to help them accelerate and scale the business
Immersion – to enable public-sector organisations to adopt challenge-based models of procurement and to co-develop innovative solutions to key problems alongside start-ups.
