How it works

You'll need to make sure you meet the eligibility criteria and fill in the application form. Once started with the application you can save the content you added and come back to it later to finish and submit. You’ll need to state interest to support you form a so called "supporting partner" to join you for 7 online sessions online (spread among 3 months of time). The supporter could be your investor or a business angel, or an investment advisor. Also make sure you give yourself enough time for reaching to your investors and obtain their commitment and support for the online part of the Trust Groups within the Accelerator. Learn why you need to do that and how it will help your application. Also make sure you visit our FAQ page for more information.

You have to submit your application and attached documents before the cut-off deadline. Contact us in advance in case you expect some delays in providing key documents. During the review period we might reach out to verify your application or request additional information about you and your business. The shortlisted companies will be notified with further details about the programme.

Before you apply

The information we collect is about you, your team and your business. We advise for detailed and honest information as it will help us give fair review to your application and improve your chances to be among the selected.

Keep in mind to go through the application criteria before you start filling out the fields as some criteria will probably need more time to be fulfilled. If you already started with your application but you need to check some details, hit the 'Save' button and return to it later. We believe that strong commitment can make a difference, and this is what we'll seek in the applications.
