Join us for an online discussion around the Public Service Launchpad Accelerator programme with Hub Launchpad CEO Dom Potter in partnership with Globalnet21 and FutureGov.
This Accelerator will focus on bringing ideas for new public service innovation ventures or projects to a next level, and start in January. Some of you will remember our first Webinar with Joost Beunderman where we talked about the Scholarship programme. For this event we will discuss what the accelerator is about and how you can apply.
This programme will include:
• An intensive 14 week programme to incubate innovation in public services
• Programme looking for 15 teams with initial £9,400 seed investment per founder
• Looking for entrepreneurs as well as people within public service organisations
• Full or part-time commitment, with 3 days per week as a minimum
• Deadline is Tuesday 10 December 2013 at 5pm GMT, but the sooner you apply the better
The webinar will be facilitated by Francis Sealey.
Please do use social media to discuss the event. The tag will be #PSLaunchpad.
