What we believe
We believe in riding the front of technology waves. We like to work with startups at the platform or application layer that utilize emergent technology to make new things possible. A favorite question is why wasn’t this possible before?
Following our belief, we see massive opportunities in blockchain, biometrics and augmented reality. They all offer new platforms with characteristics that will allow leapfrogs in solving many of the problems we face today.
We think that many of the applications dominating the internet today will be reinvented upon a decentralized node infrastructure and native currency. Biometrics will be a revolutionary data source feeding applications of all kinds and we consider augmented reality to disrupt many of the current use cases of mobile.
We are also keenly interested in XR, AI, IoT and Smart Wear. We consider them as strong evolutionary steps that will change the way we interact with media, software and things.

WHAT IT TAKES
“Accelerace made a huge difference to Trustpilot because they introduced me to people who had the exact experience we needed. Especially in the devising of our business model and the execution of it, it made a crucial difference to us. I’m not sure we would have existed today if it wasn’t for that introduction."
Founder and CEO of Trustpilot
"Being part of the Accelerace program has helped us doubling down on what is important for us at our current stage of growth. They have also opened their broad network of expertise and knowledge to us which we're extremely grateful for. We're proud to be Accelerace alumni and are looking forward to continuing our partnership in the coming years."
Founder and CEO of Golisto
"Diplomasafe’s co-founding team was part of the Accelerace program in 2019 and we got some valuable feedback on every part of our business that we have put straight into practice. We also got feedback and help with fundraising that worked out perfect. We received mentoring of high-class during the program both from Accelerace mentors and alumni that gave super feedback but also after the program ended, and I’m sure we will keep the contact in the future. Another great thing about Accelerace is that they don’t ask for equity and still work hard to prove its value. We have been extremely happy working with Accelerace. Their numbers speak for themselves, and we will do ours to make the numbers even better."
Co-founder and CEO of Diplomasafe
"Months after graduating the Accelerace programme, we experienced strong growth, got a seed investment, grew our team and certainly expanded the number of bikes in the streets counting 2000 now in 40+ locations. The key learning from the Accelerace program was the how to focus on your beachhead and kill your darlings that are outside the focus."
"The program was an effective accelerator and a good introduction to relevant business partners and approaches. In particular, the dedicated mentor and the structured approach to testing commercial hypothesis during the program were key for the breakthrough of Transporteca."
"Accelerace helped us optimize our business model and scale our sales process. We grew from 10 to 25 employees, and we have tripled our revenues. We could never have done this without the help from Accelerace!”
Co-founder of Graduateland
“We have been really pleased with our participation in Accelerace and the strategic counseling which have proven to be crucial in raising capital to make our visions come true and to meet the expectations of our owners.”
“Above all, being part of the Accelerace program helped us understand how investors think. That’s basically why we were able to refine our business model, nail our pitch and eventually secure substantial venture funding to develop and grow our business."
CEO at Templafy
"The Accelerace program has helped us with our strategic priorities in reaching product-market-fit. We have saved time and boosted our progress as a direct result of the advice we received from our Accelerace mentors and at their workshops. We are deeply grateful for the personal and professional way that the program has been executed and we do not hesitate to recommend Accelerace to other SaaS startups."
