Accelerator provides support to entrepreneurs at every stage of the process:

We INCUBATE ideas.

The INCUBATE! activity line offers support for not-yet entrepreneurs or scientists wanting to develop startups. Receive innovation training and assistance with activities, like Launchlab or other Boot Camp programmes that help entrepreneurs create a business plan out of an initial business idea or research project.

We VALIDATE concepts.

The VALIDATE! line places emphasis on validating products and services. Our network of Living Labs and Test Beds provides entrepreneurs the means to test products throughout the value chain. Other activities allow entrepreneurs to gain understanding in local/regional regulatory and reimbursement schemes and have access to market experts. See the 2017 Call for Applications for Product/Market Fit Funding, with a deadline of 30 April, 4pm CEST. For infornaton on all VALIDATE! activities, contact: Cecilia Vera

We SCALE businesses.

SCALE! activities focus on more mature startups and SMEs, to facilitate access to tools and networks for financing and market expansion. The European Health Catapult programme awards companies with the best business plans and provides training in pitching and competitiveness. Our GoGlobal Programme supports European ventures so that they can expand beyond Europe’s borders to US, China and Brazil. An Investor’s Network and the Crowdfunding Platform launching late 2017 round out the Accelerator portfolio.
