The StartPlanetNI Accelerator has been developed and delivered as a partnership between Xcell Partners, Belfast, UK and StartPlanet of Cork, Ireland. Their combined forces bring together decades of startup development and investment track record.
In addition to being part of the Global Accelerator Network, we are one of very few UK based accelerators endorsed under the UK government’s Department for International Trade’s Global Entrepreneur Programme (GEP) that sets out to help entrepreneurs who want to set up business in the UK.
Funding is led by the region’s first S/EIS fund, Colman Equity Ltd, who have a primary focus on investing in early stage technology startup companies.
The team is based at 112 Donegall St, in the heart of Belfast’s digital and creative ‘Cathedral Quarter’, neighbour to the city’s Ulster University campus offering great transport access to the rest of the city and beyond.
Our team’s entire focus, is to ensure that a world class programme is delivered to your team and helps to address obstacles and challenges.
