Easy Ear Training is embarking on an exciting new phase of product development and we are confident that the training and mentorship provided by the Academy can support this expansion in a very effective way.”
The Accelerator Academy launched in 2011 to help early-stage technology companies achieve rapid growth by providing training, mentorship and access to capital. Now entering its third semester, the Academy has been described by London Mayor Boris Johnson as representing “exactly the type of investment in London’s future businesses that will secure our position as Europe’s digital capital”.
