April 16, 2018
As we are steadily approaching the Wednesday’s application deadline for Kiuas Accelerator, we wanted to provide you with the seven best reasons to apply for the upcoming program. Here we go!
Through our coach pool and partner network we’ll have serial entrepreneursand industry experts provide their knowledge to the teams. Workshop topics include e.g. sales, legal, tech, funding, design, marketing, strategy and overall entrepreneurship.
The program’s base is on one-on-one -type coaching and getting help from people who exactly your team needs. You can find a list of some of our mentors HERE.
The teams will be supported financially during the summer. Financial aid is separated for different areas like marketing and covering your costs during the summer. The maximum amount is 5 000 euros per team.
The climax of the program, Demo Day, is an evening-long event gathering 400+ professionals, startup enthusiasts, investors and media representatives to hear pitches and connect with the teams.
The program’s teams will definitely gain visibility within the ecosystem. Our goal is to highlight our teams more than ever this year.
We don’t want any equity either. Just like many other events and programs in the Finnish startup scene, Kiuas Accelerator is completely free and non-profitable.
Kiuas Accelerator (previously. Summer of Startups) is organized for the 9th time. Our alumni have raised more than 10M€ of funding and generated revenue of same amount. You can find some of our previous teams and their references on our website.
