We are looking for…
Startups who address core activities such as wellbeing, independence and inclusion or drive innovation in the disability sector.
Startup should be up and running with some customers, but may not have experienced massive growth as yet.
While we’re not against lone rangers, we prefer teams – they have more potential to be accelerated and do all the elements of running a business.
HAVE AN MVP
You should at the very least have a functioning prototype – something that potential customers can see and/or understand about what you’re trying to do for them.
We like our startups to have a technology, software or hardware component to what they’re doing, so that we can help you scale.
What startups founders say about our program
“What might’ve taken 3 months to do, might be possible in 2-3 days. Remarkable has made us go a lot faster.”
– Max Burt, WheelEasy, Cohort #2
“The Remarkable Accelerator has had a massive impact on us. We went in as a few people with a semi-good idea, and came out a lean, focused and investment ready social enterprise with a killer pitch.
Highly recommended if you’re serious about taking your social enterprise to the next level!”
– Mel Fuller & Johan du Plessis, AbilityMade, Cohort #1
