     UPDATE - LAUNCH OF 2019 ACCELERATOR ROUND FOR PRE- SEED CAPITAL TECH 
                                 ENTREPRENEURS 
 
Startup Giants has launched a new Accelerator Round. UK-based technology 
companies at the pre-seed stage can now apply for help with funding and 
business mentoring via the Company's page on https://startupgiants.com/ 
start-here 
 
Over 230 entrepreneurs applied to be considered in the Company's last 
accelerator rounds in 2018. 
 
Initial applications are made by completing a 42-step questionnaire on the 
on-line site to determine the nature of the concept, the team behind it and the 
extent of knowledge of the market or market niche which the applicant claims to 
address. 
 
Successful applicants at that stage then undergo an interview with the Company, 
after which it will decide whether these applicants qualify for the Company's 
intensive, six-week entrepreneurship and marketing course, for which there will 
be only 30 places. This course is designed to improve the busi-ness and revenue 
model, and determine methods of marketing. Afterwards, each surviving applicant 
then pitches their business to the Independent Investor Advisory Panel. 
Successful the applicants can receive allocations of up to GBP100,000 conditional 
funding, which is released upon timely achievement of pre-determined 
milestones. 
 
Startup Giants was created to invest in pre-seed/concept stage companies with 
the aim of growing them to point where participants in the VC market may 
consider them for later-stage investment. 
 
Jeremy Buckler, Chief Executive Officer, remarked: 
 
"Startup Giants' objective is to identify "ground floor" opportunities for 
value creation and help de-velop them to the point that they become viable 
investment propositions for the VC marketplace. During this accelerator round, 
the Company will seek to add to its portfolio of such investee compa-nies."
