How we work with acceleration
We work with acceleration in three ways:
Workshops with specialists on topics relevant for your journey – to inspire you and give you the necessary tools to succeed.
1:1 sessions with specialists and experienced mentors matched exactly to your start up where you convert what you learned into action.
Review sessions where we focus on the results that you make – or what you need in order to achieve results.
We follow your climate tech startup from the startup phase through the, often over-looked, gear up phase and into the scale up phase.
