    Application Process

    Applications are open for our Spring 2017 accelerator programme. The deadline for applications is 9th January 2017 at 09:00 GMT.

    There are two stages to our application process:

    1) First we ask you to apply through our online form – you have until the 9th January to apply.

    2) Then we select around 40 teams to take through to a face-to-face interview with the BGV team, mentors and investors. Interviews will take place in London in early February.

    BGV Q&A Events

    If you’re thinking of applying we strongly recommend you come to one of our Q&A events where you’ll hear all about what happens at BGV and get the chance to meet some of the startups we’ve supported. The next Q&A is on Monday 12th December, 6.30pm at our office.

    Morning drop-ins

    We’re also holding drop-in sessions every Friday morning 9.00am-11.30am until applications close. You’ll get to meet with a BGV team member to get feedback on your idea and ask any questions you have about our investment and support. These are 30 minute sessions and you need to book a slot before turning up.
