Let's scale your biotech startup

What we believe

With consumers calling for more sustainable and environmental friendlier products and the industry wanting to reduce operating costs, the use of industrial biotech or white biotech has become very interesting and was thought to take over fast. However, the immatureness of some technologies, relatively low fossil fuels prices, and the effectiveness of current chemical processes have shown to be high hurdles for start-ups to take in order to penetrate the market.

At Accelerace, we remove some risks by helping you focus your time and resources on critical issues and prioritizing and de-risking your project using personalized issue trees and lean/agile business models. We provide open office hours and sparing for our founders based on over 100 years of collective entrepreneurial experience and using bespoke coaching tools & techniques built by founders for founders.

WHAT IT TAKES

The right product
It has to be more than just an idea. You must have a validated plan for how you will develop your product and you have defined a strategy for how it can be commercialized. Although it is not a requirement, we prefer if you have already obtained preclinical proof of concept with your technology. Products based on a service and other types of non-product businesses are welcome, but the same principles apply.
The right team
Participating startups must have more than one full-time founder who is 100% focused on the core idea. They must be able to receive coaching and mentoring in English and stay committed to realizing their commercial goals. We are looking for visionary entrepreneurs with ambitions to change the future.

A unique chance to profit from our unique network

As a part of the program you not only get the opportunity to shape your businesses in the accelerator, the most promising startups even have the chance to join the NOME network. The Nordic Mentor Network for Entrepreneurship (NOME) is a mentoring program with world-class mentors which matches Nordic projects and startups with highly skilled volunteer professionals to help them reach their goals and technology milestones.

As a part of the program, NOME also provides a unique platform for startups to participate in a boot camp in the US. There, the projects get access to FDA experts and contacts to on-site representatives. With inspiration from MIT Venture Mentoring Service, the vision of NOME is to develop and implement a best-in-class mentoring initiative that will propel the Nordic countries into one of the leading life science regions to commercialize high growth life science startups.

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.
