Along with its first birthday, MassChallenge UK recently celebrated as it opened applications for the 2016 cohort joining the zero equity accelerator programme, and there’s just two weeks left. Here’s what MCUK brings
MassChallenge is the most startup-friendly accelerator on the planet. Ranked one of the top accelerators in the World by Seed Accelerators Rankings.
Working with early stage startups, MassChallenge connects them with mentors, partners and investors, while providing the most high-impact support during a 3-month accelerator programme in London.
With individual cash prizes of up to £50k up on offer, as well as free office space, and a network any early stage startup could barely dream of, this really is an opportunity not to be missed.
Being a charity organisation, MassChallenge offers a unique opportunity to get all the business help and support you need to get off the ground for no equity, which means you’d be crazy not to give it a go!

a comprehensive curriculum of workshops, events, and mentoring
individual cash prizes of up to £50k awarded to winning startups
free co-working space in London for 3 months (winners get even more!)
