Accelerace is one of the leading accelerators in Europe and has accelerated +650 start-ups over the past 10 years. Also, they have invested in +70 start-ups and have helped leading international corporates in innovating with start-ups.

"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."

“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.

"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."
