Accelerators

Boosting mature ventures via connections with corporates, networks, and tailor-made tools.

The Acceleration Programme enhances business ventures by empowering young entrepreneurs through access to corporate partners, critical tools, ongoing education, and networks. They are the natural next step for individuals who have created their minimum viable product, and have thus acquired their first paying customers. During the programme a close cooperation with a corporate partner takes place, which allows in-depth coaching and access to relevant networks in the vertical the entrepreneur is active in.

 

During the three-month duration of the Accelerator Programme, the participants are appointed three mentors (local, international, and vertical), and are entitled to a cash-for-service budget, which they can use for specific technical trainings. The culmination of the acceleration is a demo-day, for which the participants are coached by professional pitch experts, and where winners can receive additional cash prizes.
