iAccelerate offers a practical and engaging program to help build your business fast. We offer two main business acceleration programs: 

iAccelerate Start which includes iAccelerate Start X

iAccelerate Start is a multi-faceted program for early stage businesses that are requiring support while they validate their business idea so that they can progress to the next stage in their development. Desk space is also provided in a co-working environment, which allows for peer-to-peer engagement with other businesses.
