Partner Accelerator Programme

Innovation that delivers powerful results


Our accelerator programme provides start-ups and small businesses with the chance to accelerate growth and open up new business opportunities in partnership with Sopra Steria. We partner with disruptive start-ups and scale-ups to accelerate their growth, equipping them with our own subject matter experts, facilities and large market presence to develop their business, people and client base.

We work with the most exciting partners in the market

Sopra Steria is a European leader in digital transformation in both the Public and Private Sectors, and we are constantly looking at ways in which we can provide our customers with access to exciting and innovative new services. But we know that innovation alone is not enough – a great idea isn’t an answer in itself. Instead, it needs to deliver real impact and make a tangible difference to the business. That’s why we partner with truly disruptive, emerging businesses with creative ideas and exciting products that can add real value, alter market dynamics and change the status quo.

How it works

Our programme identifies and supports businesses with innovative solutions that are near-market ready or already established in the market. Working alongside our sector business leaders we identify and publish the market and customer challenges our clients are facing, and via a number of different activities, we invite partners to pitch their ideas and solutions to our senior leadership panel. This is an exciting opportunity for us and our partners to get to know each other. For details of our programme ‘challenge pitch days’, please get in touch using the details at the bottom of this page.

Partnering with Sopra Steria has been great for us and having full transparency adds tremendous value. As a specialist partner for RPA and AI we have access to an array of additional opportunities within their client base and get to design and implement some really powerful solutions for their customers.
