5PRING Explore – 5G for Transport Incubator
5G technical and business incubation programme for early stage start-ups, innovators and entrepreneurs. Read More >
Many of the digital services we have benefited from over the last decade have been developed by small businesses, so-called “start-ups” and “scale-ups.”
Accelerators are organisations that work with start-up and scale-up businesses to help them be more successful in getting up and running.
5PRING is the UK’s first 5G commercial application accelerator. With facilities located in Birmingham, Coventry and Wolverhampton, we aim to help organisations of all sizes unlock 5G’s full potential.
5PRING is designed specifically to attract businesses and entrepreneurs to solve major problems and create opportunities that can be commercially scaled, when proven. At least 1,900 private sector businesses and public sector organisations from across the West Midlands and beyond will be able to benefit from using the 5G accelerators over the next five years.
5PRING is open to business and public sector organisations to immerse themselves, experience a live 5G network and work with innovators to take advantage of how the next generation of mobile access to the internet can unlock new applications and services.
With digital engagement at an all-time high, it is clear that the future of the economy – and in particular its recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 – will be increasingly reliant on digital platforms and over-time the potential of 5G. Read More >
