The first step in Innovate!Europe’s unique six-month accelerator program is to apply to participate in one of the complimentary Going Global Workshops. Dates have already been announced for Workshops in Zaragoza, London, Dublin, Paris and Berlin, and they are in the process of identifying other cities to add to the Calendar.
Every company who applies will receive feedback from Guidewire Group’s seasoned team of analysts. In addition, regardless of acceptance into the Innovate!Europe program, all applicants will be listed on the Innovate!Europe site. So, just by applying, you will raise your company’s profile with potential partners, customers, investors and media who are part of the Innovate!Europe community.
Innovate!Europe is run by Chris Shipley and Mike Sigal of The Guidewire Group who is a global market intelligence firm focussing on technology entrepreneurship.
Like Seedcamp, Innovate!Europe's focus is mentoring, advice and support. Seedcamp's investment is an added bonus but not the 'main thing'.
