Chalkboard TV Selected for 2019 Indielab Accelerator Programme

Business accelerator Indielab has unveiled the 16 UK prodcos taking part in its 2019 programme, and we’re honoured to be among the businesses that have been selected for creative excellence and potential.

We were selected following an application process that saw Indielab working closely with UK commissioners to identify exceptional prodcos.

A key focus of the fourth edition of the Indielab Accelerator, which is designed to help indies achieve scale, is strengthening the representation of the UK’s nations and regions within the country’s independent sector.

This year, the BBC has increased its support to become a full sponsor of the programme. Channel 4 is also renewing its commitment to the initiative, investing specifically from its Growth Fund, Creative Diversity and Nations and Regions departments.

Victoria Powell, founder and CEO of Indielab, said: “In a TV landscape transforming at great speed, competitiveness, talent and resilience have never been more important for indies. It was to help sustain and nurture the UK’s indie community — wherever they are based, and whatever the gender or ethnicity of their founders — that Indielab Accelerator was launched. We are very grateful to our sponsors for supporting us in our mission to support a vibrant and successful UK Indie sector that reflects and represents the UK in the 21st century.”

The 2019 programme runs from now until the end of May and we look forward to continuing our participation and sharing with you our journey along the way.
