The Oxford Foundry Elevate Accelerator
In 2018, the Oxford Foundry set up a business accelerator called the Oxford Foundry Elevate Accelerator (OXFO Elevate). It supports businesses in their early stages by providing skills training, mentoring and access to investment.
The programme provided a comprehensive venture building and leadership curriculum with world-leading experts including entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, thought leaders and academics.
Venture companies have gone on to raise more than £52m in capital (equity and grants) since joining the accelerator. They are valued at over £157m and have hired more than 250 employees.
