Techmodal, a Bristol-based consultancy and technology company, has relaunched its Growth Accelerator Programme to invest and develop innovative ideas within the local start-up community.
The Accelerator Programme encourages individuals, pre and early-stage startups, who have an interest in tapping into the Defence industry, to pitch their ideas with a view to collaborating with Techmodal. In exchange, Techmodal is offering financial investment, collaboration space and the opportunity to benefit from their years of experience as a trusted partner of the UK Government.
Techmodal’s relaunch follows the success of their initial launch of the Growth Accelerator Programme in Summer 2018. Two start-up businesses, Col 8 and Surface RF, were successful graduates of the Accelerator Programme and are now reaping the benefits of their Techmodal collaboration.
Charles Smith, CEO at Col 8 says, “The financial investment from Techmodal has put us in a strong place. One key thing about Defence is that it is a tricky market to enter, working with Techmodal has given us the access and opportunities needed to solidify our business. We have already submitted a joint bid to the MOD and really excited for the future of this partnership.”
