We’re excited to announce that we’re back for another Oxygen Pre-accelerator course in London this November, from 24th November to 28th November 2014, at FabLab London.
Every year at our main accelerator, we receive hundreds of applications from all over the world, which means we have to turn away over 95% of the startups who apply. But we read every single application, and interview a huge number of the startups, and in doing so, we’ve picked up on common mistakes startups make.
As a result, we created the Oxygen Pre-accelerator course, a 5 day startup school for ambitious startup teams. Through the Pre-accelerator, startups can really be put through their paces with a combination of taught sessions, expert workshops, founder’s talks and rigorous mentoring.
Does it work?
– Our pre-accelerator startups have raised over £1 million in SEED investment
– Our startups have gone onto Oxygen Accelerator, Seedcamp, 500 Startups & Startupbootcamp accelerators
– We have pre-accelerated 36 startups since 2011; more than any other pre-accelerator in Europe
And this is what a couple of our previous startup co-founders have said (we didn’t pay them – honest!)
Lauren Hine, Zealify
“The Oxygen Pre-Accelerator was a great program covering all the necessary fundamentals to get the startups off to a great start. The curriculum was well thought through and the access and support from mentors was invaluable.”
Richard Wheatcroft, YappBack
“The Pre-Accelerator was absolutely brilliant, it was incredibly practical and useful. The best part for me was getting advice and guidance from the mentors and building relationships with other entrepreneurs. The Oxygen team are extremely helpful, resourceful and have a wealth of experience to offer. I would definitely recommend the Pre-Accelerator.”
What do I have to invest?
Early-bird registration for the Pre-accelerator programme is £399 per team, standard registration is £499. It includes:
- 5 days of a packed programme featuring everything you need to know about the startup world
- Get your startup business model, marketing plans, wireframes, and anything else you’ve built analysed by our team
- Oxygen Mentors, where you’ll get hands-on time and advice from a select group of successful tech brains from across Europe
- Targetted, personal advice and introductions to help you reach your next stage
- The Oxygen Gift Bag
- Connecting with other attendees, before and after the week
- Some of your food/drinks during the week
We know that as an early-stage startup, you don’t have bucket-loads of cash to throw about, so we’ve created this programme to be as cost-effective for you as possible, so that it can really allow you to kick-start your growth and either get onto the dream accelerator or meet the best investors and networks. A £499 investment now could give you a much higher rate of success for accelerator programmes where you get £18000 or more. We can provide an option for a payment plan for anyone who needs this.
