The Acceleration Program was designed to help your startup to validate, define the business model, build a strong product to reach new markets and consumers, giving the possibility to make your product grow, together with a network of partners and mentors.
What is this?
10 bootcamps of 2 days every other week
During 4 months of hard work, the selected startups will participate in a series of bootcamps that give them access to mentors and workshops in different areas, helping them validate and define their business model, build a stronger product, reach more markets and customers and grow their businesses. The goal is to ensure that you are prepared to pitch your startup's product for investors, for partners, customers and for capture talent.
Who is it for?
Teams, not a one (wo)man show.
The program welcomes teams* with at least one full-time member, developing tech-based hardware and/or software on, at least, prototype-phase. The projects should be related to one of Startup Braga's verticals, which are Digital Economy, Health Technologies, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology.
