The Swequity Exchange

Launched at NDRC in Summer 2012, Swequity is Europe’s first ‘Pre-Accelerator’. Based on NDRC’s experience of meeting many single-person startups struggling to get off the ground, Swequity was conceived to enable idea-holders to find the right team – of designers, developers, marketers, and technologists – and to create their digital technology startup. Once formed, NDRC works with each new team to prepare their early-stage investor pitch in just 6 weeks. To date, 18 startups have been developed through Swequity, 8 of which have already secured follow on investment
