Accelerace has been part pf the Danish startup ecosystem for ten years. And this year we take in our biggest batch ever. The focus is on innovation from Denmark to show what our home country is made of.
We are doubling the size of our startup intake this summer and aims to accelerate the biggest batch of growth companies in the ten-year history of Accelerace. This is not only a great opportunity for startups but for Denmark to show off the broad spectrum of innovation we are capable of.
“In Denmark, we are good at incorporating new technology and thinking innovation with the user in the center of our products and services. Our job is to help the companies go from good to great and show the world what this little country is capable of,” says Peter Torstensen, CEO of Accelerace.
The first accelerator in Denmark
Accelerace was the first accelerator in Denmark, pioneering the accelerator space in Europe. Since the beginning in 2009, we have screened thousands of companies and accelerated more than 600 startups from Denmark and large parts of the world.
We have made sure to stay on top of our game to be able to create the most value for our partners and alumni and evolved our model into the most tailormade accelerator in Northern Europe. This has resulted in numerous prices like winning the Nordic Startup Awards best accelerator three years in a row and being hailed as a top 10 accelerator program in Europe.
“Being a crucial part of the ecosystem for ten years has given us immense knowledge about what startups need to get funding and grow. Now we are taking in our biggest batch ever, collecting all our competencies. And we will be presenting a new program outline,” says Peter Torstensen.
Now, for this big anniversary batch we are looking for Danish startups within any space. We don’t want to limit innovation but we do want our alumni to be ambitious, ready to receive feedback, ready to work with our hands-on team, and to be part of the every-growing Accelerace family.
