AccelerateHER Virtual Bootcamp

 Delivered by AccelerateHER and Skillfluence in partnership with the Scottish Government and Scotland CAN DO.

The June 2021 AccelerateHER Virtual Bootcamp is underway.

Designed to accelerate the business growth plans of ambitious female founders, our aim is to inspire, energise and connect female founders and provide you with the confidence, skills and tools to help you be immediately more effective in business.

The Bootcamp will help you sharpen your value proposition; tighten your pitch; connect with angels from our sister company, Investing Women Angels , who will give you the inside track on what angels look for when investing and provide tips on Market, Team and Finance.


If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Pirrie -


The Bootcamp comprises 4 bitesize sessions (10-11.30am) throughout June as follows:

  • 4 June - Getting Started
  • 11 June - Discovering your Differentiator
  • 18 June - Pitching with Style 
  • 25 June - Meet the Angels 

The Bootcamp is delivered over 4 turbo-charged Zoom masterclasses plus online pre-work activities. Participants will use the Skillfluence eLearning platform to watch video content and download masterclass worksheets and handouts. This ensures that when participants attend the live masterclass, the focus is on interactive discussion, sharing challenges and generating solutions together.

The aim is to create a strong network, where people will be supportive of each other and keep in touch long after the Bootcamp is finished. Skillfluence Founder, Alison Gray, will host, facilitating an energising, confidence building and participative approach throughout.

Each week we will deliver a live, 90-minute masterclass via Zoom.
