Accelerate Cambridge was established by Cambridge Judge Business School in May 2012. The School is situated in the centre of Cambridge, at the heart of the University of Cambridge and the Cambridge Cluster, the city’s academic and business networks, both of which have a long tradition of entrepreneurship.

Accelerate Star provides a structured programme that combines entrepreneurship training, regular coaching and mentoring, as well as access to shared workspace. Many of the businesses in the cluster were established by the University, its staff and alumni.
