The UK accelerator and incubator ecosystem has experienced extraordinary growth over the past five years. While a great deal has been written about the rise, few concerted efforts have been made to quantify the exact size of the UK ecosystem or the rate of its growth.

This report, commissioned by Telefónica UK, aims to do exactly that, charting the rise and impact of accelerator and incubator programmes on start-ups in 2014.
