We are happy to present the 19 new startups that are participating in the Kiuas Accelerator this fall. 

At Kiuas, we carefully select teams that we believe can succeed. There are thousands of stories behind every startup, with each being a stepping stone to something more. The joy of getting your first customer, the disappointment of realizing an idea might not work, or the excitement of discovering an even a bigger opportunity.

Having a good business idea is great, but it is not enough to succeed. When being too much in love with your business idea, you are playing a dangerous game. We support our founders and startups in idea validation and pivot, and to help them grow fast, we need them to be open-minded, and thus listen,reflect and adjust. A new business idea should balance between testing and feedback even in the market so you can collect any feedback from consumers and adjust your product to the best possible concept. The importance of being able to pivot is needed greatly when creating a business and significant in the role of perfecting your business idea.

And that´s why, this time, we decided to do things different! When selecting the teams, we did not focus our attention as much on the business idea itself, but more on the founders.
