The Øresund region – with its innovative scene perfect for fresh entrepreneurs – is also the home of several accelerators such as SoPact, Fast Track Malmö or THINK which provide early-stage and growth-driven companies form different fields support in education, mentorship and financing for a fixed period of time.
An intense 12 week program
Based in Helsingborg, THINK offers the participating start-ups during their intense 12-week acceleration program access to their international network of mentors, the possibility to gain valuable skills in expert-led workshops as well as in personalised business coaching. At the end, the now-accelerated businesses await the great opportunity to pitch their projects in front of top investors.
After receiving positive feedback in the previous years, the acceleration program – which is for free – enters its fifth round this spring. More than 140 companies applied from all over the world, out of which seven were hand-picked and have now the chance to push their idea to the next stage.
