If you have a cool project and/or a cool team to back it up and you want to move it to the next level, Springboard might be your ticket to the moon.
The Cambridge-based web business accelerator has been launched this year by Jon Bradford, puting together almost 100 investors and mentors for all the team accepted. The accelerator includes a 13 weeks bootcamp programme for shaping, building and geting the attention of the investors. Winning teams will receive seed funding, tons of menthoring sessions and a place on stage at the Investor Day event, talking place at the end of the programme. Bottom line, Springboard sounds like a great experience for boosting your startup, meeting incredible people and, of course, getting financed.
Springboard is focused mostly on web based software startups founded by teams of 2 or 3 people, who will move for the whole 13 weeks period to Cambridge and work in the awesome ideeaSpace office building, part of the University of Cambridge.
Jon Bradford, the founder and CEO of Springboard, has a large experience in financing and guiding startup teams. Jon has been a VC associate and business consultant for more than a decade, while also developing The Difference Engine startup accelerator in Middlesbrough.
If you are interested in knowing more, you can meet Jon at Bucharest Hubb this Wednesday, February 9, from 10:30 to 15:00. Jon will share his thoughts with you regarding Springboard and entrepeneurship from 10:30 to 11:30, while from 12:00 to 15:00 he will be available for public or private pitches of your startups and providing you with valuable feedback.
