Goldacre Ventures (Goldacre), a VC firm based in London focusing on the Smart Built Environment, has today opened for applications from around the world for its scale-up programme, RElab.
RElab is an ecosystem of entrepreneurs, industry leaders, corporates and investors that together focus on RE-shaping and RE-imagining the relationships between space, people, services and sustainability. The programme is targeting exceptional entrepreneurs and teams that are exploring innovative solutions at any touchpoint in this universe; from building, to curating, managing and delivering services into the spaces where we live, work and socialise.

The start-ups will benefit from: working with RElab’s partners on fine-tuning product-market fit; commercial pilot opportunities; support on swiftly growing their business; London working space; and up to £100,000 in available financing.
The three-month programme, which is predominantly based in London, will run from February to June 2020. RElab partners include BAM, Capreon, DLA Piper, JCA, Knight Frank, Lee Baron, L Marks, Lockton, Landsec, White & Case and 01 Ventures.
