Twelve start-ups have been chosen for Wales’ first ever national tech accelerator.

Twelve start-ups have been chosen for Wales’ first ever national tech accelerator.  

The Digital Dozen programme has selected 12 finalists who will receive skills training and tools to grow their business successfully.

This includes one-to-one mentoring, pitch training, access to networking events and training to grow their companies and secure further investment.

The programme will be driven by established entrepreneurs such as White Horse Capital, Lexington and Webstart Bristol – who provide the finalists with expertise and mentoring.

Head of partnerships and Digital Dozen accelerator at Innovation Point said the programme would fast-track the best and brightest welsh start-ups.

He said: “We have worked with successful accelerators across the UK, Europe and the US to gauge what does – and doesn’t – work, while speaking to companies throughout Wales about the support and connections they feel would best empower them to take their business to the next level,”

The 12 finalists vary from Properr, a company developing integrated technology for the property industry, to Geolang, a software development firm specialising in cybersecurity and business resilience.

CEO of innovation Point, David Warrender, said the programme’s previous iterations had brought “tremendous success” to the participants.

He added: “With the added support, expertise and guiding hands from proven entrepreneurs, this year looks to be the biggest yet.   

“We can’t wait to see where the programme takes these leading innovative companies.”
