We will select six of the best entries to pitch in front of a live audience at the RDS on May 31.


♦ Prize One : Three months of pre-acceleration in the London Academy

Pre-acceleration includes:

  • Free office space in Central London for a maximum of four people for the pre-acceleration period
  • Access to Wayra’s best-in-class coaches, including experts in customer development, sales, investor readiness and pitching
  • A mentor from Wayra’s network
  • Invitations to Wayra events, including opportunities to pitch to Telefónica, O2 and Wayra partners where appropriate.

Wayra would expect one key decision-maker from the company to be based in the London Academy on a full-time basis. The start-up would sign a pre-acceleration agreement, which would be valid for the duration of the pre-acceleration period (Sept-Nov 2017).

♦ Prize Two : Fast track to Wayra Finals

The finals of the Wayra Call are judged by a panel of investors from the Wayra network. This has previously included VCs from LocalGlobe, Octopus Ventures and Wayra investors-in-residence Ascension Ventures and Mustard Seed Impact.

The start-up would complete an application form when the Call opens and then bypass early selection rounds to go straight through to the Finals, which will take place in November 2017. Before the Finals, the start-up would conduct a Skype session with members of the Wayra Acceleration Team and receive feedback.

♦ Prize Three : Bootcamp

The start-up that wins this prize would be invited to the London Academy for a single day when there would be a number of coaches present, effectively becoming part of the Wayra cohort. The entrepreneur would attend sessions including masterclasses and 1:1s according to his/her specific needs.
