Jump Accelerator (Powered by Propel Teams) is working with Google Cloud to support the UK’s Sports Technology Ecosystem from its home at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

About Jump Accelerator:
Jump is an eight week hybrid accelerator for founders of early-stage sports technology startups. The accelerator aims to increase the growth potential and investability of fifteen start-ups and culminates in an in-person pitch and demo day to angel and VC investors, potential customers and a team from Google Cloud.

Jump will provide founders with the tools and templates to build a new and improved investment deck, as well as match them to expert mentors and coaches who have the specific skills and knowledge  to support, challenge and accelerate them along their journey.

Jump is powered by Propel who focus their expertise on the sports, personal health and wellbeing sectors. Propel brings their network of people and partners to assist businesses to grow fast and ignite and curate innovation ecosystems by creating physical and virtual spaces for innovation in towns and cities across the United Kingdom.

About the Relationship:

Jump and Google Cloud will also be hosting in-person and virtual events which will be open to everyone in the Sports Technology ecosystem and sharing how they can access and utilise Google Cloud tools to support their work and research and grow their impact.
