Entrepreneurs get to work in our three new hubs

In September we opened three new business accelerator hubs, or "hatcheries", in partnership with Entrepreneurial Spark to help entrepreneurs in Bristol, Leeds and Brighton take their ideas to the next level.

We've also announced that, by February 2017, we'll have 13 Entrepreneurial Spark hubs across the UK including one in our Edinburgh Gogarburn headquarters which will open in February next year.

Entrepreneurs, known as ‘chiclets’, are selected through a competitive process to take part in the programme which is designed to help their business become more investible. It focuses on developing an entrepreneur to grow a successful business.
