Forging Ahead – New Accelerator for Digital Businesses

The branding and website for the new programme has been provided by a collaboration between two Barnsley CDI companies, Genius Division and Pixelfinity.

Successful applicants from this call will become the inaugural cohort for the dotforge startup accelerator, an intense 13-week founder-centric lean startup programme based in Sheffield UK  that will run from April to July 2013.

If your startup gets onto dotforge, you could get up to £25,000 cash per founder and access to over £50,000 equity-free follow-on funding.  That’s on top of nearly $300k worth of perks from the likes of Amazon Web Services, SendGrid and Rackspace, free office accommodation and exposure to world-class mentors, investors and specialists to help accelerate your business.

The programme is particularly interested in startups with strong B2B, big data or social data focus. It will also appeal to businesses looking to leverage the region’s leading e-learning, e-health and public sector supply chains and networks.

The deadline for applications is noon on 25 February 2013. Read more and apply via
