We’ve delivered five year-long accelerators in the last three years, giving members bespoke support to help them develop cyber solutions, make the right connections with industry and expand into UK and international markets.
And we don’t take any equity or ownership over the IP of our members. All we’re interested in is helping them scale.
Now, we’re turbocharging the growth of six graduates with LORCA Ignite: our new scaleup programme.

What our cohort says about us…
“At the minute most buyers react badly to vendor approaches unless they are introduced, or the vendor has some credibility and so LORCA is a nice way to facilitate that.
“The programme is light-touch but maximum-impact. We’re able to continue growing the rest of the company and keep our focus where it needs to be while capitalising on a lot of the support LORCA offers. For companies at our stage, we tend to find that accelerators are either too high-touch (they detract from other aspects of running a company) or don’t offer any real support apart from a badge. LORCA has struck a nice balance.”
“LORCA has had an immediate impact on our business. They established a relationship that resulted in a new enterprise client within weeks. The knowledge sharing has helped us develop our leadership team’s approach to market and form a close network of allies within the industry.”
“LORCA is the best innovation programme that we’ve taken part in for one main reason: people, people, people. LORCA’s team is always supportive, efficient, available and pragmatic. The people LORCA has introduced us to are top-notch experts and great professionals.’’
