Ignite Accelerator runs their first London programme at TechHub London

We are super happy to welcome Ignite Accelerator to TechHub London and can’t wait to add them to the awesomeness already happening here! On Monday 11th January, ten amazing teams are starting a 14 week programme!

Martyn Davies, Ignite’s Programme Director said “One of the things I really wanted for the programme was to have a really great place to call our home.”

Based in Newcastle, Ignite is an angel-led acceleration fund that runs out of Campus North, where community spirit is a crucial part of the space. They knew it wouldn't be easy to replicate this in London…

“After lots of digging and searching for a space that could accommodate us we found ‘the one’, and now I realise how well TechHub London is going to work for us, I’m even more excited about getting this programme started.” Martyn enthused.

Paul Smith, Ignite’s Co-founder & CEO similarly enthused “I’ve always felt it’s in our interests to give first and unlock that resource for the good of the wider community.”

Our newly expanded space at TechHub London is a massive 6 floors of a 7 storey building, with room for teams and residents, loads of community spaces and a shiny new events area.

The Ignite programme will include workshops, fireside sessions, large multi-mentor sessions and Paul Smith’s new female founders programme.

Ignite’s regular Office Hours are open to all, so come and have a chat with them here at TechHub London.
