The IPA Accelerator scheme, sponsored by Moore Kingston Smith, is designed to give up-and-coming agencies whose gross income is less than the £500k required for IPA membership* some guidance, help and inspiration as they grow their businesses.
Listed below are all the resources on offer to Accelerator agencies. We hope that, in due course, our Accelerators will progress to IPA membership*, which opens up access to the full range of services and benefits.
(*Please note that being part of the Accelerator scheme qualifies an agency to describe itself as an IPA Accelerator agency but not as an IPA member or member agency – the IPA Accelerator scheme and IPA corporate membership are different forms of engagement.)
Please direct any queries about Accelerator, or membership, to Alex Buxton, firstname.lastname@example.org.
