Entrepreneurial Spark® is the world’s largest free people accelerator for start-up and scale-up businesses. Open to businesses from all sectors and completely free, Entrepreneurial Spark® takes no equity in supported businesses. Entrepreneurial Spark doesn’t just help businesses grow, it helps entrepreneurs to develop as individuals – building people who build businesses. With a strong focus on the people behind the ideas, the team of expert Enablers, mentors and business leaders help develop the mindsets and behaviours of an entrepreneur. The Entrepreneurial Spark programme lasts initially for six months and can continue for up to eighteen months. It provides Entrepreneurs with collaborative working space, wifi, printing and phonelines but more importantly access to its unique enablement mentoring programme to help them achieve their business growth ambitions.
Following on from the huge success of its initial three Hatcheries in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire, Entrepreneurial Spark also now operates in Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton, Leeds, Belfast and Manchester. To date Entrepreneurial Spark has supported 660 businesses with 88% of these still trading today – a figure broadly double the sector average. Combined these companies have created 1,816 jobs and raised over £45million in investment.
Hatcheries in a further three locations, Cardiff, Newcastle and Milton Keynes, will be opening in August 2016. With a further Hatchery in London planned for August 2017 this will give Entrepreneurial spark true national coverage which will support Entrepreneurial Spark®’s vision of developing an entrepreneurial revolution across the UK.
