The core Digital Arts and Culture Accelerator (DACA) syllabus leveraged training content from The Accelerator Network’s pre-accelerator Fast Forward and 12-week Accelerator Academy programmes. The nine participants came into the process with ideas at different stages of development, from award-winning R&D projects, to working prototypes and unproven concepts. Motivations also varied and it was clear from the outset that equity investment was not appropriate for most. What our pioneers all displayed was a deep curiosity, willingness to learn, faith in the process and mastery in their respective fields. We were off to a promising start.
