Unlike the vast majority of accelerator programs, we offer two different acceleration paths:

1. EQUITY PATH

• We invest 50K€ in exchange for 10% of the company’s equity: (10K€ in cash + 40K€ in perks and services)
• The acceleration program is a 4-month process, receiving support by a dedicated team that will help you accelerate your business faster than you ever did before
• You’ll be granted with unparalleled market access through our 63 stores in Spain and Portugal and more than 3 million users in our e-commerce

2. ZERO-EQUITY PATH

• Toys “R” Us Iberia can also work with mature companies that wish to introduce both new physical products and services to the market (not exclusively toys).
• Under this framework agreement, companies must not give up equity in exchange for participating in the program, but a commercial agreement with Toys “R” Us Iberia.
We will define a tailored acceleration program for each of the companies entering inside our portfolio, including resources such as:

> €10,000 in startup funding
> €40,000 in program perks
> 4 months of top-tier mentorship and leading-edge practices on the retail landscape
> Access to co-working facilities (if required)
> Access to venture capital
> Media exposure
> Opportunity to pitch at demodays/ investors’ days
> Support from industry mentors and venture capital professionals
