The Pathfinder Accelerator programme is designed and developed for Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to nurture growth in life sciences and technology. Pathfinder Accelerator provides 12 weeks support to test business ideas in a focused environment and is specifically designed to enable participants to build a company or launch a new product saving both time and money.
What we did:
Twelve weeks of coaching and mentoring is offered to help the start-ups and budding entrepreneurs develop contacts, source funding and plan for future growth. Participants benefit from dedicated experienced business coaches, tailored workshops and seminars, the opportunity to engage with life sciences and technology experts and the use of collaborative office accommodation at Inverness Campus.
It culminates with a demo day when participants make their final pitch to prospective investors and partners. This programme has been successfully delivered for 3 years across the Highlands and Islands.*
*Due to Covid-19 we have adapted this programme to be delivered virtually. Find out more here.
