Circklo's Configurator Academy is a fixed term, mentorship-driven programme dedicated to start ups aiming to succeed in sustainable digital innovation.
We are looking to accelerate start ups for profit and impact in the areas of:
- Sustainable Food and Beverage companies;
- Sustainable Fashion companies;
- Recycling and reuse of resources (i.e. plastic, metals etc.);
- Non-financial metrics calculators and track and trace platforms;
- Financial technology (Fintech).
We work intensively with individual teams for 12 weeks, ensuring we help them create a refined business plan. Each 12-week cycle culminates in a Dragons' Guild Day, when the teams which have attended the programme will be presenting their business plan to a carefully selected, invite-only audience of investors and industry experts, the ultimate goal being that of seeking investment funding for their business idea, and/or a way to validate their idea with a real case scenario.
