As promised, we are keeping you up to date! So, here you are. Applications for the 2nd edition of weExelerate Accelerator Program have opened on April 9th! Exciting, right? WeXelerate helps startups from all around the world connect with big corporations. It’s a unique opportunity for them to develop their ideas, as well as enter new markets.
Every year, over 50 startups and 16 big companies participate in the four-month program. It focuses mostly on: media, banking, insurance, engineering, energy, blockchain, AI, mobility, and security. Companies at every stage can apply, but the program is especially beneficial for startups at the growth or scaling stage.
So what’s in it for the participants? First of all, mentoring. The participants have an opportunity to learn from over 100 experts with years of experience in entrepreneurship, management and business consulting. What’s more, weXelerate offers each startup a truly individual approach: Mentors will assess what kind of help each startup needs and tailor the program to their needs.
The program is divided into modules, with lots of activities organised every day. You can attend educational courses, panel discussions, conferences, and networking sessions. During workshops, you will learn about creating business plans and pitch decks, growth hacking (especially if you’re using the SaaS platform), product designing, as well as get answers to all your legal, financial, and marketing questions. You surely won’t be bored.
What’s best, you only have to cover the travel and accommodation costs. In Vienna, you’ll be provided with a high-quality workspace, at the beautiful weXelerate Spaces estate. Sounds awesome? There’s no doubt that weXelerate offers perfect conditions for searching, testing, and implementing your solutions.
Warsaw-based Newspoint knows all about it. The app monitors your brand on social and traditional media, and analyses big data and influencers. All that to provide you with in-depth reports and help you expand your business. Thousands of brands all around the world recognise their worth and use their services. Last year Newspoint was chosen for the first batch of the Accelerator Program, and its creators are very happy with the results.
“We applied for the first batch of the Accelerator Program, first of all, because we operate internationally and Austria, where weXelerate is based, is an important market for us. Secondly, we were looking for an accelerator that provides a place to work, expert mentoring, training, business relations and assistance in planning international expansion. Thirdly, we needed a partner who is interested in supporting a structured, safe, and profitable business, not companies at the concept stage. We found all that in weXelerate,” said Robert Stalmach, CEO Newspoint.
The next edition of the accelerator is scheduled for October 2018. It will end in January 2019, crowned by the Investor’s Day and Demo Day. During these events, startups will get a chance to present their ideas to potential clients and investors.
