Programme details

The Advanced Construction Accelerator responded to a need in the construction sector for solutions supporting the streamlining of operations, decarbonisation and digital future of the industry.

The programme offered access to industry specialists, investors and successful founders; access to services such as supply chain mapping and guidance on Standards;

The programme also offered participants the chance to pilot their technologies with industry partners Ibstock, Ferrovial and Arup.

The programme saw more than £9 million in equity and grant funding raised from participants within 6 months of leaving the programme.

We also created a partnership with Turner and Townsend, the global construction consultancy who provided industry-mentors for participants and facilitated introductions for participants.
