Accelerator Awards

  • Manufacturing Startup Stars

    The Accelerator’s Manufacturing Startup Stars programme recognises potential, excellence and ambition. In companies which are currently either pre-revenue or are in the earlier stages of commercialisation (up to c.£2millon turnover), we look for:

    • Strong and well-defined innovation
    • Compelling commercialisation roadmaps
    • Scalability and sustainability
    • Focused, capable and passionate people

    The UK Manufacturing Accelerator will work closely with select Startup Stars to maximise their potential. This is an intensive and long-term relationship, drawing on our extensive networks, capabilities and corporate finance firepower.


The UK Manufacturing Accelerator has enjoyed the advice and support of many friends and organisations in developing The Accelerator Awards. Here are some of them:
