About Springboard:

Springboard is a mentorship-led accelerator program for startups.

We provide seed capital, office space and – most importantly – that magical ingredient of “smart-community” with mentors and other entrepreneurs. It’s the product of our learning from other game-changing accelerator programs (specifically Y Combinator and TechStars) and adapting them to fit an international environment.

Historically, over 50% of the starts up who enter these programs have succeeded in raising capital in the next round of funding.

What we’ve learned is that at the heart of Springboard should be the exchange of experience, advice, know-how and counselling provided by over 75 great mentors including experienced entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

    ------------------

    When you land on the website, do you want to know more about the program? Yes I do because I work with investors on a daily basis.  Anything to do with entrepreneurial start ups immediately capture my attention.
    Would you apply to the program? If not, why not? If I were in need of this type of program, I definitely would join, however, at this time, I really do not have a need for it.  I would however, recommend it to my colleagues.
    Do you think it is credible? Glancing through the website, it does look credible, but I am never one to jump onto something without extensive research.  I would have to a lot more information as to the funding sources before I would agree.
    Is there anything on the site that needs clarification? Because the money is listed in pounds, but yet is open to others, not just in the UK, I would feel more comfortable being able to see the true the USD price as well.  Being from the US, when I see something only listed in pounds, I automatically assume it does not apply to me.
    As far as additional feedback/concerns, I would suggest that the figures be broken down further.  Maybe put the actual rate, other than just 6%, just speaking from a lay person’s point of view.  I also feel that the deadline of February is a very short period of time.  It might have been better introduced earlier, with a further deadline time.
