About Oxentia Venture Build

  2. ADVANCE – a six-week (5 x 1/2 half-day weekly sessions) pre-accelerator programme taking ideas through to validated business models
  3. ACCELERATE – a 12-month programme where high-potential innovations are competitively selected, supported, and developed to venture launch
