Eight companies take part in the Helsingborg Accelerator this fall. Entrepreneurs from Paris, Copenhagen, Stockholm and from the region have sought to develop their product and business ideas in an intensive accelerator program. Over 160 companies from around the world applied to the program.

“We have an exciting startup field with startups from various industries such as construction, fashion, food, VR or automotive,” says Alexander Bastien, Managing Director at Think Accelerate.

Think Accelerate is a 12-week program where startups develop their business ideas with support from experienced business developers.

“Think Accelerate has been around for 5 years and so far 46 companies helped. 53% of companies come from abroad, which means that we now have a community that spans Sweden’s borders. 85% of the companies that participated in Think Accelerate are still active and many of them come back in the form of mentors.” says Jenny Sandberg, Program Manager at Think Accelerate.
