What you get
The GreenUP Accelerator is based on experience from seven years of acceleration; we have accelerated 150 startups, helped them raise more than DKK 1 billion, and more than 90 % are still going strong. In other words, we know how to make you succeed!
And now we are taking acceleration even further by introducing the most ambitious acceleration program ever seen: Three programs in one! All for free!

A free desk in Futurebox, Denmark’s leading incubator and accelerator for tech startups

Learn from likeminded
You will get a free desk in Futurebox where you have access to unique peer-to-peer learning in a community of 40+ deep tech and hardware startups, a strong investor network, a state-of-the-art prototype workshop, events, close contact to leading researchers at DTU, and much more. You will be part of Futurebox’ thriving community.
The Futurebox community
Everything centers around the unique community in Futurebox. Your everyday life during the GreenUP Accelerator program will be a continuous ‘learn from the best’ experience where startups who made the journey co-exist and nurture each other through network, sparring, events, and informal meetings. You will also have access to the Futurebox business developers and former entrepreneurs with several years of experience with acceleration and incubation – we know your challenges, and we help you prepare to tackle them.
This community has been one of the biggest benefits and has been the reason why I have - despite also having an office centrally in Copenhagen - decided to bike out to Futurebox 3-4 days a week.Participant in previous Futurebox acceleration program
1:1 sessions with experts
Sometimes the Futurebox business developers and former entrepreneurs are the best to teach you. Sometimes they are not. So, we have engaged with a number of external partners that are experts in what they do. You deserve the best training.
