ASquared Impact Accelerator

Published: 06 Jun 2023

An evening of entertainment for all, and an unmissable event for sustainability-focused startup founders in Sussex.

Brighton-based ASquared is hosting the Impact Accelerator £50K Funding Show to celebrate and reward impact-focused startup founders.

The novel event, dubbed “Dragon’s Den meets Britain’s Got Talent” features five startups pitching their businesses in front of a panel of experts, mentors and a public audience.

With a Britain’s Got Talent twist, you, the public, get to vote on which startup is successful in securing the cash investment. 

All participants get to vote for the startup they think most deserves the £50,000 - the founding team with the most votes on the night will grab the glory and a neat £50k from ASquared. 

Much more than £50,000

Sure, you get to determine which impact-focused startup is awarded the investment, but there’s much more on offer for you, too!

TEDx Speaker

This online event features an exclusive, exciting keynote presentation from 4-time TEDx speaker, global entrepreneur mentor and hugely successful social impact co-founder, Paul Dunn.

Paul never fails to leave his audience excited and inspired. 

In his £50K Funding Show talk, he’ll be talking about the highs and lows of entrepreneurial life as well as the “power of potential” in all of us. 

This is a must-see, one-time opportunity for any entrepreneur and a powerful motivator for everyone else.

A Tangible Positive Impact

That’s not all, 50% of all ticket sales will be contributed towards carefully selected global worthy causes that are helping achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, creating positive impacts for people, biodiversity and the planet. 

That means, just by purchasing your ticket you’re already having a positive impact on the world.

Get Ready for Your £50k Opportunity

The event is designed to be an exciting, entertaining evening for all. 

Additionally, it is an ideal opportunity for impact and sustainability-focused entrepreneurs to find the motivation they need to take the next step.

All participants will have the opportunity to sign up for the next Impact Accelerator and start their journey towards the next £50k Funding Show.
