How does it works?
The accelerator programme will have 2 phases, the 1st phase aiming to develop a value proposition and business plan, while identifying, through 1-on-1 mentorship and systemic design modelling, gaps in knowledge, market access, expertise, equipment, etc. needed to further develop and/or enable commercialization. The DigiCirc Innovation Ecosystem will be leveraged through a matchmaking tool to help SMEs create complementary consortia, meeting SME capacity gaps, and enabling large scale demonstration. The 2nd phase will spark consortiaโ€™s potential by closely working on solutionsโ€™ market potential and go-to-market strategies, as well by providing financial and knowledge-based support to speed up MVP improvements.

During both phases, accelerator beneficiaries will have free access and specific support to use all DigiCirc digital tools and IP services, preparing for and initiating LSD.

What's in it for you?
- Up to โ‚ฌ60k equity free funding per SME/Startup
- 3 useful digital tools and data to facilitate the digitization process
