About the Accelerator Challenge cohort

In November 2022, we launched our Accelerator Challenge in partnership with BRAN Investments across the UK. We were delighted to welcome a cohort of exciting ventures from across a range of diverse sectors – including health-tech, food and beverage, financial inclusion, ed-tech and climate change – tackling issues that have a positive influence on humankind and / or the environment.

These ventures have worked through 3 phases over the course of the challenge and now come together to conclude at our demo day, where they will present to a collective of investors and others in the impact space. If you are interested in investing in this sector, we welcome you to attend and can facilitate.

You may have already heard the buzz about a few of them already, so come along and meet them on the day.

About BRAN Investments

BRAN Investments is dedicated to helping passionate people achieve real business success. Since the late 2000s, banks have become reluctant lenders, and we’ve heard about numerous great ideas and well-run businesses unable to win the financial backing they need to grow.

BRAN want to change that. They want to give you your chance.

BRAN are a family of four with 40 years’ experience in business and property. Through BRAN Investments, they want to share their own expertise, access to our large network of knowledgeable commercial contacts and offer direct funding and access to capital to help new and promising ventures achieve more.
