How we are truly different
Let’s be honest. Many accelerator programs are just facilitating networks, guidance and events. We know that most startups, however, struggle to define a scalable business model and have a limited runway and need to identify before their money runs out.
Our teams are industry-specific but also work in cross-industrial groups to solve your problems. We apply specific tools and use our collective experience, corporate partners and brainpower to find the right solutions.
The effect will be that you identify your scalable business model. The result will be that we and/or other quality investors offer you money. We know because we’ve been doing it for 7 years with a startup survival rate of above 88%. Now we will do it for you.
Go pick your program.

“Accelerace helped us at a critical early-stage financing. This meant that we were able to finish our pilot study and raise an investment. With this investment, we could initiate our large scale randomized clinic study, and obtain evidence that our treatment can help the patients. The study has just been completed and currently we are busy bringing our LeucoPatch product to the market to help patients heal chronic wounds, like diabetic foot ulcers. We are happily looking back to our time in Accelerace.”
Niels Erik Holm, Chief Operating Officer, Reapplix
"I found the Accelerace program is unique in that it actually gives you a real chance of securing a pilot with a big company. Our biggest milestone more recently is, that Arla has decided to do a pilot with us. Obviously enabled by the Accelerace program, which is wonderful."

"In the beginning of the accelerator, we had a workshop where we got a thorough review of our past major decisions (e.g. what we have done and why). It was a good retrospective to form a base for future decisions. We are now forming stepping stones and a roadmap on what is needed for a complete scalable business model."

“Driven by the growth of renewable energy sources and the rise of digital technologies, the energy landscape is in transformation. Tomorrow, the consumer will have an ever more active role to play as a ‘prosumer’. This will offer opportunities to existing but also new actors. By joining forces, Elia and Accelerace aim to provide the necessary support and technical expertise to nurture innovations and help start-ups grow in the electricity sector.”

At the Novo Nordisk Foundation, we are very pleased with the Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) that Accelerace has established over the last year. Today NOME covers the entire Nordic region including life science start-ups from all Nordic countries and several high-level mentors in the network. NOME is surely on its way to become the beacon in the ecosystem that we had hoped for from the very beginning.

Luca Seletto, Head of startup Initiatives, Enel

Christian Lund, CEO, Templafy
