    We are looking for early-stage startups that are still in the initial development stages.

    The value of the 6-month personalized incubation period is 30.000 EUR, however, we offer plenty of financing opportunities to pay for the program. Contact us if you are interested, and we can work out the details on a case-by-case basis.
