Are you running a life sciences, health or technology business that’s looking to grow? Or do you have an exciting idea to explore? Pathfinder Accelerator puts you in a stimulating and challenging environment to help you develop and test your ideas for commercial viability. Completing this intensive programme helps you deliver your product to market faster, with less risk, reduced cost and a higher chance of success based on rigorous testing and proven models.
How can it benefit my business?
Pathfinder is designed to help established businesses or start-ups develop an idea by testing their business model in a concentrated environment to determine its commercial viability.
Using time-efficient, cost-effective techniques to interrogate, analyse and develop the idea over 10 to 12 weeks, participants also get a further period of coaching and mentoring to develop networks, source funding and plan for future growth.
Pathfinder is a fast-track, reduced risk route to help you build a company on a strong business model or launch a product with substantially less investment, in less time. Pathfinder cohorts take place several times a year across the Highland Council area.
