Entrepreneurial Spark acceptance for Celsium


Celsium's Shelley Lloyd and Stuart Beaty have been accepted onto the next Entrepreneurial Spark programme which starts in February 2016.

Entrepreneurial Spark, powered by RBS, NatWest and KPMG, is the world’s largest free business accelerator for early stage and growing ventures that has developed a proprietary "entrepreneurial enablement" programme to take entrepreneurs through a cognitive and action centred development process. The Entrepreneurial Spark programme lasts for 6 months and can continue for up to 18 months.

Shelley and Stuart will benefit from access to a collaborative office environment suitable for building teams, known affectionately as the Hatchery. Businesses in the Hatchery, located in St. Philips Place, Birmingham, receive free access to business enablement and support from a pool of over 50 business mentors. 

The focus of the Entrepreneurial Spark programme is on the individual rather than the business, developing entrepreneurial mindsets and behaviours to enable acceleration and growth.

"Being accepted onto Entrepreneurial Spark is a major step forwards for Celsium. With support from highly experienced business mentors and regular one-to-ones with Enablers, this will allow us to focus on our business, drive it forwards and provide an even higher standard of service to our clients," said Shelley Lloyd.

The business accelerator programme has just announced a partnership with GetTaxi, the taxi hailing app, hailed by Forbes magazine as one of the "15 Most Explosively Growing Companies to Watch". This means that Entrepreneurial Spark members will benefit from mentoring sessions from the GetTaxi team every month at the hatcheries.
