The NatWest Accelerator Programme is now OPEN for applications for the March 2023 cohort

Developed over the past six years, the fully funded NatWest Accelerator programme has revolutionised the support for entrepreneurs, and has proven to really work.

This programme includes:

  • 1:1 and group coaching.

  • Insight, thought leadership and mentoring.

  • A community of like-minded entrepreneurs all working to grow their businesses.

  • Access to one of our 15 co-working spaces, or the option to choose our Digital Accelerator to access all support virtually.

Who’s eligible?

If you're a business which is already trading – generating turnover or you have received investment - with ambitions to expand, the NatWest Accelerator programme could help.

You may be looking to build your team, venture into new markets or seeking further investment. The programme could help you gain the knowledge and skills to excel in a range of business areas:

  • Accessing new markets.

  • Attracting talent and building an effective team.

  • Access to growth funding.

  • Leadership development.

  • Developing a scalable infrastructure.

You don’t have to be a NatWest customer to take part in Accelerator.


The programme starts with an Ignition event week commencing March 13th 2023, and extends over six months with fortnightly events, opportunities and monthly 1:1 and group coaching sessions.

There is an option to reapply for up to 18 months of support in total, with the first six months of support open to all businesses, and the additional 12 months reserved for NatWest Group customers.

Interviews will take place throughout December, January and early February. Places are limited.
