We are delighted to be part of ignite100 Europe’s first £1 million accelerator programme for digital start-ups. We believe it is one of rare funding programs that understands the realities of taking an idea from scratch to functioning business.

ignite100 is a mentorship-led accelerator program for start-ups but with a big £100,000 difference.

They provide seed capital, office space and mentors, and the runway necessary to sustain momentum after the end of the acceleration programme.

ignite100 comes in the shape of an intensive 13 week programme based in Newcastle in the North East of England – home of the Thinking Digital conference and the programme’s predecessor, the Difference Engine.



I met Paul , the program manager of ignite100, at the Virtual Enterprise Conference and I am looking forward to meeting him again and learning and sharing with the mentors and applicants. Snook are big fans of Newcastle and I’m excited I now have a reason to take a trip there!

Submit your idea today! Closing date for applications – 17th July 2011 and it’s open to people with ideas world-wide!
