Do more. Go further. Burn brighter.

Europe's #1 network of angel-led accelerators.
We're Ignite and we're here to help entrepreneurs grow, make a difference
and build businesses people love.

Ignite Pre-Accelerators

Our Ignite+ programmes run regularly across the UK and are designed to help new founders validate and progress their ideas using actionable methods and tools.

The programmes are completely free and take place over four weekday evenings in each city.

The Team

We've founded businesses, raised investment, created apps, launched products, been knocked down, got back up. We’ve walked a mile in plenty of shoes. Collectively, we've worked on more accelerator programmes than anyone else in Europe.
