These ventures have just started at Accelerate Cambridge. They are at various stages of development, with some having already raised their first seed round.
At The Adjustables, we design affordable, sustainable and comfortable clothes that can grow with kids. In practice, traditional children clothing brands offer in average five sizes between birth to 18-months-old and these clothes are by design disposable. We aim to provide a more environmentally responsible alternative to parents to keep up with all of their child’s growth milestones. We are offering them the option to buy one garment with easy to modify sizes, saving them time and money. The Adjustables aims to change to future of fashion, one stitch at a time.
AutonomiCity powers the smart infrastructure of tomorrow. We provide resilient and sustainable solution to extend the life span of the buildings by combining biomimetic designs with 3D printing technology and the use of recycled plastic. Our hope is to create together a living future for our next generation.
We develop large-scale 3d printers based on cable driven parallel robots. With our robot we will produce highly individual export boxings for manufacturers of large and awkward machines, components, and goods. The boxes will be printed out of recycled plastic and will help our clients to deliver their products safely around the globe. Through additive manufacturing we bring a high degree of automatisation and digitalisation to the production process of export boxing.

Gene.ly is a patient focused platform that matches cancer patients to clinical trials based on their genomics. Through partnerships with the seven NHS Genomics Laboratory Hubs across England, we will seamlessly integrate with the NHS’s oncology services. When a cancer patient and their oncologist receive genomic sequencing results, we will enable them to automatically search and be matched with relevant clinical trials based on the patient’s biomarkers. We provide this service for free, to the NHS, oncologists and most importantly to patients and ultimately will provide data insights from this matching service to pharmaceutical companies and biotech SMEs.
Lionheart Lifting is bringing a new brand of fitness equipment to the market designed around the needs of military members and those who work or live in uniquely challenging conditions. With U.S. military experience on the founding team, we are developing a value proposition that addresses space requirements, anti-microbial needs, durability, and many other features that fall short in serving this demanding space. Utilising military agencies as a beachhead for market penetration, Lionheart will also serve the private sector as the go-to brand for military level fitness and physical discipline.
