THINK, an accelerator that is going into its sixth year in the industry has kicked off its 8th edition with nine new and hungry startups.
In total 230 startups from Sweden and abroad applied to the Helsingborg based accelerator, making it a new record for the Southern Nordic accelerator. Last week nine selected startups began their journey with the three-month program. Companies from Russia, Finland, South America, Copenhagen and Sweden will advance their business and get tailored coaching and workshops from THINK and external coaches during 12-weeks.
“We have got a solid line-up this time with a broad variation within the group, and we have taken in almost the doubled as we used to. The thing that they all have in common is that they are powerful teams and co-founders. The focus will be on building the companies, create valuable relationships and get them ready for investment. Something that we think all of them will succeed in.” Alexander Bastien, Managing Director.
The startups represent various areas in AI, fintech, booking services for families with kids, digital interior design and retail market.
“The main purpose is to attract new startups to the region and Helsingborg. Helsingborg is one of the best places to start a company. The city of Helsingborg is very open to innovation and technology, and it shows in all of the support organisations that are working to build a better community and better job opportunities right now.” Jenny Sandberg, Head of Programs.
The program will culminate in HBGTECH in late May, where the startups will pitch in front of investors and showcase their business.
