Kiuas Accelerator (previously known as Summer of Startups) will be organized again this summer. During the past years, not only our alumni startups but also the whole program has developed and grown up.

It’s pretty safe to say that Kiuas Accelerator is now bigger and better than it has ever been: the alumni companies have in total raised over 20M€ and we have now over 100 professionals in our coach pool, new perks in Kiuas Toolbox, and a strong community of over 200 alumni startups.

"I’ve gone through three accelerator programs, and Kiuas was by far the best organized, toughest and most rewarding"

So, what are we looking for from the applicants?

You’re serious about your startup. At least one person from your founding team should be working full-time, and you’re ready to set up a company – if you haven’t done it yet.

You should have more than just an idea. You have developed an MVP or a prototype of some sort and feel that topics like product-market-fit, sales, and growth are relevant for you.

Above all, we value the ambition to execute. Your startup doesn’t have to be perfectly up and running yet, but you should be ready to put in the hours, learn fast, and go all out during the nine weeks.

It won’t be easy, but it’s worth it.

Do you think you got what it takes? Apply to Kiuas Accelerator by May 20 and take your startup to the next level.
