Alacrity UK — Supporting Young Entrepreneurs to Solve Real World Challenges

For the past 13 years, since its foundation, Alacrity UK has changed the landscape of the tech start-up industry in South Wales by developing the next-generation of digital entrepreneurs. Alacrity UK’s mission is to create an inclusive environment for graduates and aspiring entrepreneurs to solve industry challenges through technological innovation. By partnering with a variety of established corporations to fully understand their obstacles, Alacrity UK constructs innovative solutions in an agile way that larger organizations can sometimes struggle with. Providing world-class coaching and mentoring for cohorts, ensuring they are equipped to handle anything that the start-up world can throw at them, and helping to make their businesses sustainable.

The vision going forward is to become the hub for entrepreneurship within the UK — not just for the programs provided, but also being a reliable partner within the digital and cyber ecosystem. A new Business Social event, which runs monthly, provides an opportunity for like-minded business owners to collaborate via knowledge sharing, generating new connections, and learning from experienced entrepreneurs who share lessons learned from their journeys. This provides a platform for established and well-renowned business leaders to inspire others to maximize their value as well as grow their ecosystem.

Alacrity UK is passionate about its community and will be at the forefront for businesses to lead the way to ‘pay it forward’ and its corporate social responsibility will be heavily weighted on local community, participating in the regeneration of Newport, Wales with a number of established partners.
