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 are struggling to define a scalable business model. But they have limited runway and need to identify and execute it 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.


"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.”

NOME is surely on its way to become the beacon in the ecosystem that we had hoped for from the very beginning.

"Enel and Accelerace had the opportunity to collaborate in the implementation of the INCENSe program, a European accelerator funded by the European Commission. The collaboration was great, as the startups selected received a really valuable support and were well prepared to get in touch with Enel’s business lines to implement their solutions."

Luca Seletto, Head of startup Initiatives, Enel


"I think the tailored Accelerace program where we have a personal mentor that follows us in one-to-one sessions is just unique, and that’s really what we need."

Christian Lund, CEO, Templafy
