Is this for me?

Funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Accelerate at Leeds Beckett University is part of the AD:VENTURE programme. It aimed at businesses who are:

  • Looking to grow and create jobs in the Leeds City Region
  • Delivering their product or services to other businesses rather than direct to the consumer.
  • Looking for a structured programme, with flexible one to one support, which will keep you on track to help achieve your goals.
