Running your own agency can be demanding, but we'll give you the help and advice you need to give your business a real boost

We know how challenging it is to run an agency, which is why we have set up the Accelerator Community. It's designed to give agencies whose gross income is less than £500,000 a taster of the expert help and advice offered by the IPA. We hope it will give your agency the boost it needs to grow your business.

As part of the Accelerator Community, you'll be able to access a selection of valuable IPA resources at a specially reduced rate. And you’ll enjoy a wide range of networking opportunities too. So your business will soon feel the benefits.

The day to day running of your agency is easier with Accelerator. We’ll help you with much of the standard agency paperwork. Just download industry templates including contracts and HR Templates whenever you need them. If you’re looking to recruit, we’ll help you find the stars of the future through our Creative Pioneers apprenticeship programme and our annual Advertising Unlocked open day. You can also advertise your vacancies free of charge on our website.

Upskill staff and win pitches 

Once staff are onboard we’ll help you keep them with our Continuous Professional Development Programme. It offers training courses and qualifications designed to help your teams be better at what they do. Of course, your business will benefit too.

Pitching is easier with the IPA behind you. With Accelerator you can visit the IPA Insight Centre to access trend perspectives that could help you win the business. Don’t forget to protect your work/IP, we offer a free pitch deposit facility to support you.

A wealth of knowledge to help you

We publish content to help and inspire our Accelerator agencies, from Marketing Effectiveness in the Digital Era to a databank of award-winning IPA Effectiveness entries. 

Being part of the Accelerator Community gives you the boost you need to grow your agency. We are the Power behind the Practitioners.

How much?

When you belong to the Accelerator Community you will have privileged access to all the facilities above for just £2,000 per year.
