Impact Central

Impact Central is a six-month accelerator and mentoring community for impact start-ups ready to take their business to the next level.

Social Good
Remote & In person

Their accelerator programme is designed to empower impact entrepreneurs with the best tools, training, and resources available so they can scale their start-up.

The accelerator is 6-months long and split into two 3-month phases:

  • Phase 1 is all about immersing yourself in the knowledge, challenge and feedback of their expert faculty and HQ team over the course of a 12-week programme. You’ll have 150 hours of in-depth learning through a series of growth sprints, masterclasses, and one-on-ones. Workshops include product/market fit, pitch training, impact measurement, financial modelling, marketing, branding, UX, leadership development and much more.
  • Phase 2 is about action and implementation, with the weekly support of a dedicated mentor and the Impact Central leadership team. You will finish with a clear roadmap for future growth, and Impact Central will get you in front of investors.
  • After the 6-months have come to an end, Impact Central remain a shareholder in your business. As a member of their alumni, Impact Central will retain regular contact and support throughout the entire journey of your business.

As everyone learns differently, they’ve developed a wide range of virtual and in-person learning, coaching and communication methods with that in mind.You’ll be part of a private slack channel for your cohort, and a private slack channel connecting you to all Impact Central Alumni.

Whilst they’ve designed Impact Central to run alongside operating your start-up, it’s still an intense programme and requires a significant time commitment.

Your business has to be registered and operate in the UK, however they welcome founders who live overseas but run UK businesses.

They offer the programme of support at no upfront cost to founders – in return, they take a 5% equity share in your business.
