Allia Impact Accelerator – Diversity & Disability-Inclusion

Female Founder presenting

5 months of intensive workshops and support to take you to the next level in your impact journey
Applications are now closed - but you can still register your interest below.

Who is this programme for?

The Allia Impact Accelerator is for late pre-seed or seed impact UK-based start-ups that are creating solutions around neurodiversity and physical disability, and tech as a response to challenges experienced by people living with disabilities (such as software/hardware assistive technologies for mobility impairment, sensory impaired disorder, chronic pain, etc).  

Start-ups will have an MVP, should be able to demonstrate traction, and are now looking to develop the next stage of growth in their business. Ideally, founders will be able to travel to London occasionally to benefit from in-person interactions – however, we recognise that not all participants may be able to travel, and if this is the case, please share details in the application form.

We understand that in person interactions may not be ideal for everyone so please understand that we will aim to be flexible for all taking part. Above all, we prioritise genuine and authentic engagement in the programme and with our team, and want to welcome everyone who thinks they will benefit from participation in the programme.

We are now closed to applications but you are welcome to register your interest in our future Impact Accelerator Programmes.

Networking event

Demo Day

To conclude our Impact Accelerator programme, our cohort will showcase their ventures through our Demo Day in June 2024. Our ventures that successfully qualify for the Demo Day through a series of pitch practices will be coming together in London, to pitch to an audience of impact investors (angels, VCs, family offices), advisors, start-up founders and stakeholders in the impact space.  

DO. THIS. Best Accelerator on the planet.

You must be able to share metrics around your progress during and after the programme for at least one calendar year.

Workshops are usually on Tuesdays. In-person sessions will be held at least once a month at our London office (Queen Mary Enterprise Zone). Most of the sessions are being held online or in hybrid format.
