Accelerace launches Future of Work accelerator in collaboration with Symbion

A new accelerator program will help grow the companies that will disrupt the way we think about work traditionally. The Future of Work accelerator is the newest vertical in Accelerace and is created in collaboration with Symbion which gives the startups access to test in different co-working spaces. 

How we work is changing dramatically. We – both as individuals and as businesses – require freedom and flexibility. We need to be able to work anywhere and anytime as the world becomes increasingly globalized.

These trends have giving rise to the concept of co-working, digital nomadism and The Future of Work where individuals, startups, SMBs, and even corporations embrace a new, flexible, and social way of working together.

With combined forces, Symbion and Accelerace have created a Future of Work accelerator program where startups within the space get access to tailored mentoring, test facilities and an outstanding international network.

The first four startups have already been selected and will meet on the 29th of April when the new program kicks off in Copenhagen.

The Future of Work startups are:

ByLife

ByLife is bringing nature indoors with their Smart Living Walls. Studies show that by surrounding yourself with plants can improve your well-being. At the same time, you become more creative as well as productive. Nature is key for us to be our best.
