Oxygen is one of the most established and successful Accelerators in Europe.
We search for, attract & select the best early stage high risk, high growth, tech startups the world has to offer. We put them through a rigours selection process then spend 3-months exposing them to the world’s best mentors and introducing them to customers. At the end of the programme we typically triple their valuation and raise them a seed round of £100k-£500k.
We do this with 10 startups at a time because we know the statistics suggest that this way we are most likely to find the one startup which is going to be the next big thing.
Most investment networks fish for startups in a 50 mile radius. We look all over the world. The Oxygen team spends time attending conferences, meetups, pre-accelerators and events across the world and we also run our own events in 20 cities across the globe.
We get 500+ applications from startups from 63 different countries for each accelerator programme we run, showing that we are truly hunting on a global stage.
We grade each application and Skype-interview the top 100. From those we select 30 startups to attend our 2-day Selection Camp. Our Angel investors then take pitches from each of the shortlisted startups and select the final 10.
Oxygen is uniquely backed by a group of Angel Investors that provide the funding for each programme. Each Angel investor commits between £5k & £30k in exchange for equity in each of the 10 startups selected for the programme. All investment qualifies for SEIS.
