TESTIMONIALS

The Accelerator was a great environment, it was the culture of learning and we got the structure. Being on the same boat as everyone else, we got invaluable lessons from each other.

By MARK ELLIOT, Profit Bees

When we arrived in Belfast 3 months ago to start the StartPlanet Accelerator Programme, we had no user engagement and we had no commercial partnerships. We now have 9 commercial agreements with 9 peer to peer lending platforms covering 90% of the market.

By IAIN NIBLOCK, Orca Money

Clinishare gained a huge amount from being part of Start Planet. During the process, we turned our job positions from part time to full time, expanded the knowledge and the size of the team, and got ourselves investment ready in a way we could only have dreamed of the year previous. We also raised the capital we needed to take our vision from concept to reality.

By ANDREW CUTHBERT CEO, Clinishare
