We were ecstatic when Accelerator won the Community Focus Award last year. It still sits pride of place on our reception desk! The judges selected us due to our focus on putting our startup community first, and how we target and introduce grassroots communities of students to entrepreneurship.
Once again we’re not just a finalist for one award, but three award categories! The HOFFA categories that we are up for this year are:
👨👩👧👦 The Community Focus Award
This category is for workspaces who go above and beyond for their community. Whether through benefits, events or support services.
Here at Accelerator we fundamentally believe in the power of community. Our main goal is to foster our amazing community of tech startups to help them build amazing services and grow! We also love bringing London Met students into this real-world environment; connecting them with and allowing them to learn from our awesome startup founders.
💸 Best Value for Money Award
Everyone loves a good bargain. This category is for the workspaces who give you the most bang for your buck, including all-inclusive services and facilities in their pricing compared to competitors.
We give our affordability a double thumbs up! We offer plug and play office space, free meeting room use (no tokens needed here) and bring everyone together to offer free community lunches and networking drinks once a month.
More money in founders pockets so they can spend on what really matters!
🏆 People’s Champion Award
HubbleHQ like a little democracy, so they’re bringing back the People’s Champion Award again for 2020! The winner of this award category is up to you! The People!
For 15 years Accelerator has been helping our community of tech startups grow and scale in the heart of London’s Tech City in Shoreditch. We’ve also provided the perfect home for the Student Enterprise programme, which gives London Met’s passionate early-stage entrepreneurs a chance to turn ideas into viable ventures.
So, if like us you think Accelerator deserves to win the People’s Champion Award, we would be very grateful for your vote in this category! Voting closes 19 February and you can vote for Accelerator here.
