Recommendations

Frank Manuel Saviane CEO at Fast Forward Advisors

Great accelerator on the crossroads of Italy, Austria and the Balkan regions and the last batch (in which I had the chance to provide a growth engineering workshop) had really good level of startups!

Peter Bruner CEO at QRiouz

Awesome environment to start your business. Great people. Network. Mentorship. Access to money. What else do you need?!

Barnabas Malnay partner at SmartWare.tech

If you’re a founder pondering whether to apply to an accelerator and if so, to which one, I strongly recommend you to take the option of ABC seriously. They are truly the cream of the crop. Driven by a great vision, embedded in a wide-ranging global network, competent to the utmost degree, and loved by all who have met them, they are an exceptional bunch who can, and will, help you define and reach your goals. As impressive in their know-how as in their attitude and work ethic, they will create the most conducive environment for you to grow your startup and keep it on the right track. I’ve seen them in action in the past few months doing wonders with their most recent batch of startups. They are certainly one of the best European accelerators among the dozens that I’ve got to know in the past few years.

Laszlo Gulyas ARISE Europe lead in Central and Eastern Europe at EIT Digital

ABC Accelerator is one of the ARISE Europe partner organizations of EIT Digital. I have been collaborating with the ABC team since the fall of 2015 and I have, but the best to say.

I have also seen their Batch #2 startups progressing through their program. The contribution to the development of those teams by ABC was impressive. I am looking forward to continuing our collaboration and I am advising young founders to enroll in their program.

Piotr Bucki

I had a chance to work with startups from ABC accelerator and I loved it. Not only because the projects were great but also because of how the ABC team organised everything and took care of me. As I pitch coach I can only work with people who are open-minded and willing to work hard. ABC made sure that was the case.

I truly admire the work they do – making Slovenia a firm and interesting point on the map of European Startups. The spirit, the people, the attitude and hospitality. All in one! I strongly recommend startups from around the globe to consider this place. And I strongly recommend investors taking a look when the next batch of startups arrive in ABC.
