Growing Your Ideas

Abstract
Support systems like accelerator programs have proven to be a successful way of empowering and growing new startup ideas. To grow and accelerate your business, there is no one size fits all model – different ideas, industries, sectors need a different model. Each support model has a unique approach and/or focus and the program strengths and focus needs to suit the founder and/or idea. The panel represents different successful acceleration approaches across the startup, university, public sector innovation and corporate innovation landscape.
