The NatWest Accelerator Programme is now OPEN for applications for the September cohort

This comprehensive Accelerator Programme offers fully funded 1:1 coaching, insights and connections, and community support from other businesses who are also on their growth journeys. It is specifically designed to develop entrepreneurs and empower them to grow their business, regardless of geographic location or sector.

Also offered is access to one of 14 co-working spaces across the UK – or applicants can opt to take part in a virtual programme with all support provided via Zoom.


Interviews for Accelerator will take place throughout July and August. Spaces are limited so businesses are encouraged to apply early.

The programme starts with an Ignition event during the week of September 12th 2022. The programme runs for six months with weekly events and monthly coaching available.


The NatWest Accelerator Programme is open to businesses in any sector who have ambitions and plans to grow and scale over the next 12 months.

Businesses don’t need to bank with NatWest to apply for the first six months of support.

NatWest Group business customers can apply for an additional 12 months of Accelerator support after the initial first cohort.

What do businesses say about Accelerator?

Here’s what some Accelerator participants have to say about their time on the programme:

“For me the most rewarding part of the accelerator experience has been the focus it has given me. Thanks to regular check-ins with my mentor, I was able to set actions and monitor progress towards my 6-month goal. This has allowed me to tune out distractions and focus on the important bits.” Radovan Gallo, Flux Aviation

“I have had the opportunity to connect with industry experts from whom I have sort advice and guidance. The programme has also given me the opportunity to connect with other like minded individuals and evolve as an entrepreneur.”

Shelley Young – Founding director of Ocelia Ltd
