Welcome to the UK's Premier Growth Network
for Tech Founders

The founder journey is one like no other. 95% of the population will never understand the excitement and hurdles that must be overcome.

Let Techcelerate be your trusted partner. Our team and the community can help open opportunities and reduce the roadblocks you will come across on your journey from concept to exit.

Product Development

From prototyping to extensible MVPs and fully blown software products. Our partners can support all your product development needs including any AI/ML and integrations.

Gaining traction

Building a product is one thing, gaining traction is another matter all together. Tap into the Techcelerate Growth Network to gain the help you need to grow and scale.

Developing your team

People build companies. Fill your skill gaps with volunteers from SkilledUp Life. Let our recruitment partner(s) and RecruTech companies take care of your paid talent needs.

Fundraising support

We strongly support gaining traction before founder equity dilution. Let Deal Lite guide your next fundraiser and help you save time by finding best fit investors for the stage you are in.

Ranges from pre-revenue and pre-product (1 person) to £1m+ ARR (25+ person) market leader.

Built on trust.
Created for tech founders by tech founders and those who have scaled tech startups.

From 2006 to 2013, we built Manchester’s tech ecosystem when there was no support structure for tech founders. Today, we are developing four inter-connected networks, to give tech founders the best chance of survival and growth.

What our founders say

Trust isn’t achieved overnight. It has to be earned. Here’s what some of our founders say about Techcelerate.

"Manoj has the innate ability to cut through the noise and get the core of the problem when it comes to starting or scaling a tech business. That combined with his ability to listen empathetically and always adopt a solution-oriented mindset is what encouraged us to work with Techcelerate."

Ram Raghavan

"Techcelerate has been an invaluable guide – helping me to benefit from the experience and knowledge of others. I would strongly recommend it to anyone seeking aggressive growth of their tech business."

?

Is Techcelerate an Accelerator?

Hell no! There are overlapping features with accelerators, but we are here for the long run (start to exit) and not taking a cohort led approach.

?

Any cloud credits and perks?

Yes. At present, we can support you to secure $5k AWS credits and $120k IBM credits.

?

Does Techcelerate take equity?

No, we do not. We strongly believe that founders should not give away equity willy nilly. We operate through a simple annual membership plan.

?

Are partners and specialists free?

No. If they undertake a project with deliverables, you would need to enter into a commercial agreement with the Partner.
