In June Renovagen Ltd were one of 90 startups awarded a place, out of over 900 applicants, on the MassChallenge Accelerator in London. MassChallenge has been very successful in the past in the USA, based originally in Boston, but this was the first time they had run a programme in the UK. We have benefited from additional mentoring and use of office space in London and the ability to leverage the MassChallenge global network of supporters and alumni. In October we made it to the Top 26 and pitched for a share in £500k of cash prizes – and on Thursday 22nd October we were one of 6 companies who won a £50,000 equity free cash award at the awards dinner and showcase. Top 6 out of the 900 UK startups who applied!
The giant cheque (not legal tender, unfortunately) has secured a proud position on the wall of our office.
