Our passion is to help young companies build viable products, launch them quickly and successfully raise capital.
Our five 3-6 months acceleration programs are based in vibrant technology hubs:

Each team accepted to the accelerator will receive initial seed financing in the form of a grant in total of up to €30,000. In addition, the most promising companies with the highest potential business ideas, will receive follow-up funding of €30,000 – 250,000 after the programme. See more details about our offers here. CEED Tech is a project co-funded by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme (2014-2020).
All investments made are co-financed by private angels and venture investors with proven track records of cooperation with our accelerators. The private investment will be made in return for 5% to 15% of equity stake in the startup. All of our accelerators are backed by private investors and the European Commission, which enables us to offer unique access to financing, mentorship and FIWARE technologies.
