Entrepreneurial Spark provides entrepreneurs with cash boost

Entrepreneurial Spark

Entrepreneurial Spark has provided six entrepreneurs with a cash boost at its annual #GoDoAcceler8 event.

The business accelerator, which provides support for new businesses, presented the cash awards at its hub in Manchester.


Entrepreneurial Spark set up the #GoDoAcceler8 programme to train entrepreneurs in leadership skills and encourage growth for new businesses that have joined the Manchester Hub.

Entrepreneurial Spark is run in partnership with NatWest and KPMG. So far, the company has supported over 650 businesses across the UK, providing them with mentoring and training to help them grow.

The company has rolled out a number of incubator hubs across the UK over the past couple of years, and recently teamed up with US IT company EMC to create the largest free tech accelerator in the UK.


Commenting on the #GoDoAcceler8 programme, Chief Executive Officer Jim Duffy described it as an “exciting stage” in the Entrepreneurial Spark programme.

“The progress we see is incredible and it’s hugely rewarding to watch entrepreneurs who joined us three months ago often unable to clearly articulate their business idea stand up and deliver a winning pitch,” he said.
