Cause UK has been commissioned this month to work with Dotforge to provide PR and marketing support to its successful Accelerator clients.
Dotforge is a commercial, three month accelerator for early stage software companies. The programme is delivered by Traction Central Ltd a company established by local entrepreneurs in Sheffield to support up and coming new businesses. The programme structure is based on similar models developed in the USA which provide early stage teams with access to small amounts of investment, mentoring by local, national and international business leaders to fast track technology businesses to investment and growth, including:
- Pre-Seed investment of £30,000
- Free office space in Sheffield
- Extensive access to mentors and networks across the UK
- Fast-track access to key decision makers in the public, private and third-sectors
- Support from a range of globally influential business and technology partners
After the initial three months, ventures will have access to a further six months of resources to help them scale their ventures, including office space, fund raising and sales support and access to a further investment pot of £500,000 to support further growth over a two year plus period.
Applications are now open for the second accelerator programme which commences in October 2015; applicants will receive £30,000 convertible investment with access to further funds following successful development of their enterprise.
