Prospects Mentored by Leading Global Advisory Businesses


Xler8tr offers the opportunity for Prospects and Sponsors to work in cooperation with some of the foremost names in the commercial business world. The range of expertise that Prospects will have access to is perhaps unparalleled in an accelerator context:

  • Simmons & Simmons - a pre-eminent international law firm widely recognised as a leading life sciences practice

  • KPMG - an international accountancy and Business consultancy practice and one of the so-called ' big four' whose office in Cambridge specialises in supporting Post academia start-ups

  • Silicon Valley Bank - a leading hi tech commercial bank which has already helped fund more than 30,000 start ups

  • Alacrita - the pre-eminent life sciences consultancy business within the UK based in London and Cambridge MA

  • The Knowledge Transfer Network - the UK Governments interdisciplinary knowledge sharing department funded by Innovate UK

  • Marks & Clerk and Mewburn Ellis- both intellectual property practices with significant expertise in the life sciences space

  • Marsh - a global leader in insurance broking and risk management, with a team focused on the life science sector

Whilst the support of external Partners can in of itself provide no guarantee of success of any one Prospect we at Xler8tr believe that such available expertise is key in maximising the chances of success.
