The Excelerator Consortium, was created in 2015 through a partnership between Winning Pitch and Impact Innovation to deliver the Business Wales Accelerated Growth Programme (AGP) contract throughout Wales.
This highly successful programme continues to deliver significant economic growth to Wales. Research and evaluation studies indicate that for every £1 spent on AGP, £17 is generated in the wider Welsh economy.
The Excelerator Consortium is engaged in wider work across the Welsh economy. For example we are managing and leading peer to peer entrepreneur networks in Wales. We are working with University of South Wales to fund PhD research into high growth businesses and the most effective forms of support to enable growth.
