When it comes to growing a new venture, things are easier said than done. Fortunately, there are numerous options for kickstarting a business and then getting the support you need to help it grow. Incubators, pre-accelerators, accelerators and venture builders are all there to help.

Saalim Chowdhury (Managing Director of Techstars London) is behind one of the biggest and most prestigious accelerators in the world. Harish Malhi (Founder of Goodspeed) has experienced the other side of the coin as a user of programmes like this. It's difficult to know where to start as a young entrepreneur looking to grow their venture, so that's what we're digging into today.

We at the Centre for Entrepreneurs have been researching the support programmes available to UK entrepreneurs and have launched our report 'Incubation Nation', including the largest, free online directory of UK accelerator and incubator programmes.
