The Alpha
Programme

INTRODUCING THE
ALPHA PROGRAMME

Your Idea Our Spaces

We’re on a mission to find the best up and coming talent shaking up the tech and digital lifestyle industries.

The Alpha Programme is a 12-week long intensive accelerator programme for startups at pre-seed stage. Each cohort benefits from relentless pitch practise, workshops led by industry superstars, real-time feedback from our community and exposure to talent, partners, clients and investors. The programme culminates with an industry dinner, allowing our entrepreneurs to form relationships with London’s most hands-on early-stage investors.

During the programme, our cohorts receive Huckletree membership for up to three people from their team. You’ll come together with the rest of our community to share the latest on your journey at weekly members drinks and breakfasts, too.

We don’t take equity and we don’t charge membership fees. We’re simply looking for talent, passion and commitment, a disruptive concept and proven market opportunity.
