It has never been a better time to be a tech startup.

The costs associated with starting a digital business are dramatically lower, it is simpler and scalable solutions are much easier and faster to deploy.  Alongside this, your solution can be distributed to a market with readily available channels such as social networks, search and apps stores – all of which can be measurable.

But the rise of open source, cloud computing and the newly created distribution channels, described above, has also dramatically changed how solutions and businesses are created – known as “lean methodology” – and has been embodied by “The Four Steps to the Epiphany” by Steve Blank and also “The Lean Startup” by Eric Ries.

Springboard combines investment capital with an intensive 13 week mentor-led accelerator programme.  Whilst Springboard is based at Google Campus in London and ideaSpace in Cambridge, it is aimed at ambituous and scalable early stage businesses from both the UK and overseas.

Applications for Springboard Web will open very soon.  Sign up to our newsletter for regular updates.
