Applications Open for 2 Ignite Programmes!

October 20, 2023

We’re excited to announce that applications have opened for not one, but TWO, Ignite programmes:

Applications for both programmes will close on 17 November 2023.

A huge thank you to our funders, Barclays Eagle Labs and North of Tyne Combined Authority, for enabling us to run our programmes and provide support to tech startups in the region.

The Launch Programme: a brand-new Ignite programme

Through a new partnership with Barclays Eagle Labs (as part of their Ecosystem Partnership programme), we’ve been able to expand our offer for startups and deliver a BRAND-NEW Ignite initiative.

The Launch Programme is designed for aspiring & existing founders who are currently juggling their startup ideas with other commitments. Ignite will help them explore what it takes to take their ‘side hustle’ to a full-time occupation.

Kev Price (formerly co-founder of Ricochet and Reframed) has been appointed as Programme Manager to help deliver this new programme.
