' It brings innovation into the heart of BBC Worldwide whilst exposing our start-ups to a world-class media organisation. '
Each year, we invite six companies to participate in a six months accelerator programme. During this time the start-ups are mentored by our dedicated team of industry experts and introduced to BBC Worldwide’s global network. It’s a two-way relationship, exposing BBC Worldwide to innovation and disruptive technologies, while supporting promising UK digital entrepreneurs to grow their potential.
