Where Danish
pre-seed startups come to scale up

There’s a reason why we’re one of the leading accelerators in the Nordics. Instead of doing pom-pom waving, having set office hours and asking for equity, we focus on spending time upfront with you. If you want honest feedback and learn how to transform a potentially crappy MVP into product-market fit and beyond, we’re the accelerator you need.

“We feel [the program] should be an integral part of every startup journey. Your program is above and beyond expectations, and is really something that has helped our company fast-forward a couple of years over the last few months!”

Casper Kraken, Founder & CEO at Fooducer

“Accelerace bootcamp and program were some of the best activities that BlueBenu has participated in. The quality and high level of the mentors and all the members involved were crucial for us to develop our startup. Also, everyone was so helpful and answered all our questions regarding legal and finance. We highly recommend Accelerace for startups who need quality guidance to develop and grow.”

Kamila Kunrath & Sarah Venturim Lasso, Co-founders of BlueBenu
