Acceler8me was started by entrepreneur Brad Channer. After experiencing unsuccessful and successful startups himself, Brad fell into consultancy and fundraising 8 years ago. Now Brad runs the Acceler8 Group, a collection of businesses all designed to help Startups and SMEs reach their full potential. This collection of companies includes Acceler8me, Acceler8in and Investment Searcher.
Over the last 8 years Acceler8me have helped over 100 businesses get Investment Ready, Find Investment or Exit.
Acceler8me was started when Brad was sick of seeing entrepreneurs with great business ideas, being rejected for funding as they weren’t ready for investment. He figured out, that after making a couple of changes, that these businesses could become investable if the entrepreneurs were willing to listen to investors.
Using his skills as a professional actor, Brad communicates with businesses and entrepreneurs to get the most out of them. He strongly feels everyone is capable of starting a successful business, they just need the assistance, patience and humbleness to succeed.
“There is no such thing as a bad idea, only bad execution”
Brad has won numerous awards, been judges on numerous panels, made many speeches for entrepreneurship & finding funding, and is proud to be running a business that has been involved with moving over 30 businesses over to Wales, which has created well over 100 jobs.
There are tens of thousands of investors in the UK, all with different interests and skills.
