Liberty Global is partnering with renowned technology accelerator Techstars to launch Virgin Media Accelerator powered by Techstars, a new programme to support innovative digital start-ups.
Virgin Media Accelerator is a three-month mentoring programme supporting companies working on innovative ideas relating to the digital world. The launch of this initiative further extends Liberty Global’s support of digital start-ups and complements the existing programmes supported by Liberty Global in two of its key markets: the ‘Telenet Kickstart, powered by Idealabs’ accelerator in Belgium and Virgin Media’s ‘Pitch to Rich’ programme in the UK.
Bruce Dines, Vice President, Liberty Global Ventures, said, “Innovation and the infinite possibilities offered by a connected world lie at the very heart of our business, which is why we’re proud to partner with Techstars to launch the first ever Virgin Media Accelerator Programme. This programme offers an opportunity for all kinds of companies – we are interested in driving innovation, convenience and social well-being across our consumer and business connected world. We encourage all interested companies to apply to this program and look forward to working with the best start-ups in the world to help them bring their brilliant ideas to life.”
