Flagship Group and TechVelocity have created the first not-for-profit incubator of digital talent in Norfolk.
Supported by UEA, Barclays Eagle Labs and NUA, the digital accelerator programme is designed to find local start-up companies and equip them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, work on their weaknesses, and provide support to make them more attractive to potential investors. The programme lasts between three and six months, after which the start-ups will able to pitch for investment.
Sam Greenacre, head of communication, Flagship Group, said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for Flagship and we can’t wait to see the type of businesses wanting to be part of the programme. Not only are we proud to support local start-ups, but we hope that we’ll find innovative companies that we can work with that have the potential to help us save money and make our customer service even better.”
