Aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners across Moray are being invited to apply for a new 13-week training programme designed to fast-track their growth and success.

Called the Moray Accelerator, it is being run by Elevator who are looking for start-up, early stage and growth companies who want to transform themselves to gain national and international success.

Elevator has been appointed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Business Gateway to launch the programme which is the first fully funded one of its kind in the north-east.

Following an in-depth one-day bootcamp, up to 20 of the most promising participants will secure a place on the scheme which will run from a series of locations including Horizon Scotland in Forres.

Participants will have access to support for product development and testing, customer acquisition, financial planning, intellectual property and more.

They will also be assisted with Business Gateway services, sector experts, seasoned entrepreneurs and Elevator’s national and international network of mentors.

Applications are open now and will be accepted until August 14, with the programme running two days per week from September 16 until December 15.

Donna Chisholm, HIE area manager in Moray, said: “Everyone who is thinking of setting up a fast-growing business, or running an operation that could go much further, should take the opportunity to apply for a place on the Moray Accelerator powered by Elevator.

“With our partners Business Gateway, we want Moray’s entrepreneurs to have access to the best business thinking, so we are delighted to welcome Elevator into the region.”
