Inspired by 100+ incubation and acceleration programs realised globally in our Impact HUB Network. Based on our previous experience and best practices on the market we have localized our main programs to meet regional needs, local market conditions and maturity of the startups and organisations.
Based on our experience and expertise we know what works and what doesn´t. We have designed and delivered 10 fully-fledged incubation or acceleration programs. Typically, it lasts from 2 to 4 months and consists of workshops, intensive trainings, business development and individual mentoring and business coaching. On top of that various networking and matchmaking sessions are provided.

Overall, we have accelerated hundreds of individuals, teams, founders, early-stage startups, social startups or newly founded ventures. Based on mutual agreement we can provide also individual, fully customised acceleration of startup or project.
