Beyond Beta’s First-Ever Batch: Meet the 32 Selected Startups

It’s finally time to kick off the first round of Beyond Beta’s Accelerator Program! After screening hundreds of startups, the 32 most intriguing young startups with the potential to become the great companies of tomorrow have been selected.

Beyond Beta launched only 1.5 months ago and with 300+ startups registered on the Pre-Accelerator, 32 startups have been accepted into the Accelerator Program. In this batch, you will find business ideas such as a personal blood sampling device, a millennial-centered investment platform, a waste management system to transform mixed fiber textile waste into pure raw materials and a device where relatives to people suffering from dementia can handle video calls, calendar and photos on their behalf remotely.

“There’s a good spread in both industry, geography and types of companies among the selected startups, but what they all have in common is their demonstrated growth ambition and potential”, says Mads Løntoft, Head of Acceleration at Accelerace.

An Action-Packed Program – with a Catch

Camp #1 will take place online on October 20-22. The 5-months Accelerator Program gives the selected startups exclusive access to 3-day camps, deep-dives, mentoring from a designated Business Accelerator, potential for funding (500,000 DKK convertible note), networking opportunities with industry experts, serial entrepreneurs, investors, lawyers, etc., as well as extra resources (e.g. access to crucial software such as Google Cloud and HubSpot).

There is, however, a catch: Beyond Beta is divided into three phases with cut-offs every six weeks. This means that the startups need to display the right commitment and ability to learn and execute in order to move on to the next phase. It’s tough but fair, because the further the startups get; the more opportunities are unlocked.
