About the program

 
 A 3-month, high-paced, experience-based accelerator program designed by serial entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders to help tech startups raise capital and boost their sales. Since 2016 we have accelerated more than 100 startups, and 95% are still operational and have been funded. We have successfully scaled some of Norway’s most hottest startups, and learned that running a successful startup/scaleup ultimately boils down to the founders ability to convince investors and customers; thus we have made that the focus of our program. 


Companies who have graduated from the program will have a much higher probability of receivning institutional funding.
