Not even a month has passed since THINK Accelerate held its first DEMO Day as there is already news about new exciting initiative. This August THINK launches a 3-week long digital summer bootcamp for startups from Sweden and around the world, reports DiGital.

The purpose of the bootcamp is to help new startups grow during the summer by giving them access to educational resources, THINK’s management team and a number of THINK’s international advisers. The condensed program will take startups from an idea, to an early prototype in just a couple of weeks through mentorship and regular tips and growth assignments sent straight to participants’ inboxes. And the best part is that participation in the program is free of charge.

The first two international advisers to be announced as taking part in helping startups in the summer bootcamp are:

  • Joakim Jardenberg, business angel and investor, who was ranked #14 in The Telegraph’s list of ”The 100 most influential technology investors in Europe”.
  • Rahul Raj, serial-entrepreneur and former intrapreneur at Walmart, who is currently a VP of Marketing & E-Commerce at ecobee, a smarter wifi-enabled thermostat for homes. Rahul has also been recognised by TIME magazine as ”revolutionary”.

The best company in the summer bootcamp could win the bootcamp’s grand prize: a spot for one startup and two of its founder in THINK’s Fall 2015 accelerator program. Traveling expenses from anywhere in the world to Helsingborg and accommodations during the program will be sponsered by IP firm, Zacco.

THINK’s autumn accelerator will have its second run. The first batch of Accelerator companies included Fieldly, who recently took in funding of 5,3 million SEK (620,000 euro).

Program starts August 3rd, so register here today to become a part of this cool summer adventure!
