Program Overview

Work with an experienced US based team of  entrepreneurs, investors, experts and your peers through our accelerator program

Weekly Meet-Ups

The Program is 16 weeks and is based on milestones, with each being covered over three weeks of engagement. Each week an expert is invited to talk about a specific topic and help you develop your own strategies and execution.

Workshops

Every three weeks, during the weekend, there will be a workshop divided into two sessions: 


1. Keynote Speaker who will provide great insights and experienced advices;
2. Review of your work of the past three weeks with the accelerator teams.

Pitch Day

The day after the Workshop is dedicated to pitch practice, where different panelists are invited from our network to judge your performance and provide feedback. 

Demo Day

The accelerator culminates in a Demo Day at which the startups present to a carefully selected, invitation-only audience.

Soft-Landing Program

Selected startups who successfully graduate from the program will be invited to apply to the 6-week soft-landing program in Boston.

Ongoing Partnership

The Demo Day is not the end of the journey but just the beginning!
