IWCI hosts Startup Bootcamp

On 14th September, the Imperial White City hosted Startup Bootcamp, an accelerator programme that supports early-stage tech companies in growing and developing their emerging technologies and innovations. Each programme focuses on an industry and gives the opportunity for an unparalleled level of support from industry professionals.

This edition was led by Trevor Townsend, CEO at Startup Bootcamp Australia and focused on smart energy with 10 participating companies split into two sessions. The format of the programme allowed the companies to give 5-minute pitch presentations on their most up-to-date development followed by a roundtable discussion.

Trevor Townsend stated that “It was great to partner with the Imperial White City Incubator for our FastTrack event in London. The standard of the startups that we met with was exceptional and certainly relevant to our clean energy theme. The FastTrack event is all about helping the startups shape their business, we were fortunate to have some great mentors along on the day, including Graham Hewson and Anca Mandruleanu from the White City Incubator.  We look forward to building the relationship with the Imperial White City Incubator as part of a global network on entrepreneurship and innovation.”
