About the Accelerator
AIN Labs is an Islington-based accelerator. We provide your early-stage startup with access to mentors, office space, connections, investors; and to an entrepreneurial community in which you can develop and give yourself the best possible chance of success.
At AIN, our goal is to support you through the first phase of your business development. We will guide you to the point where you have a product impressive enough to raise money from early stage investors. We will also introduce you to later stage investors to ensure that our influence lies far beyond the 3 month programme.
Who are we?
The AIN Labs team has a broad and deep spectrum of experience in the startup space.
- Founders of the World’s largest Angel Network
- G&T, a leading London property developer
- Entrepreneurs who have worked in, built, bought and sold some of the UK’s leading startups
- Industry experts and professional mentors across multiple fields
- Private Equity professionals with hundreds of deals under their belt
What can we offer you?
Starting a company can be solitary and challenging. Working with other entrepreneurs in a like-minded and ambitious environment will help you learn essential skills, exchange contacts and find inspiration to succeed.
Our facilities include: high speed internet, showers, an in-house Café with friendly baristas, meeting rooms and, of course, bright, open-plan desk space.
AIN have designed a course to equip you for startup success. Mentors selected by us for their proven expertise in fields ranging from marketing to user testing, will be on hand to help you develop. It’s like a Startup MBA, so get your notepad ready!
Startups live in our office for three months (some too literally- lucky we have showers!). In that time, we will work with you on your business strategy, your growth & metrics and your investor pitches. We will provide you with access to programmers and branding experts who can help get your business looking just the way you want it.
At AIN, we have a network of over 500,000 entrepreneurs and investors worldwide. These will be at your disposal to build relationships invaluable to your success and impossible without us. You’ll also get access to a network of 1000+ founders and mentors who will give you all the guidance you need for success. Need an intro to a customer? Need a strategic partner? We know a guy…
The stamp of being an ‘AIN Accelerated company’ is great validation for your business. Our network will help you connect with investors when the time is right. On our Demo Day we pitch your product to our extensive network of investors. These investors offer not only funding, but also the expertise and contacts essential for your business to grow.
