County Durham entrepreneurs set for boost through latest accelerator

A cohort of new businesses in County Durham are set to launch with support from a six-month accelerator programme.

Business Durham will support five entrepreneurs through the next intake of its Durham City Incubator (DCI) initiative.

Chinese learning app Learneast Language, online events management platform Eventurstar, food safety software GRAPE Software, membership organisation Rural Business Network, and edtech Education Equation will all be part of the fourth cohort on the programme.

Each business will receive a £2,500 grant as well as six months of support in a bid to ensure they are ready for the next stage of growth.

Sarah Slaven, interim managing director at Business Durham, commented: “We’re delighted to be working with a fourth cohort of ambitious new entrepreneurs. We’re really looking forward to working closely with our partners to help nurture and support the entrepreneurs as they grow and scale up their business in Durham.

“It is inspiring to see the Incubator continuing to attract innovative businesses that are choosing to start-up in Durham. With our support these new companies can make a real impact on our local economy and inspire other future business leaders.

“This is particularly important as the economy moves into the recovery phase as it is vital we continue to support businesses to grow, thrive and create jobs.”
