Business Model Development
The first stage of the Accelerator is intended to help early-stage Startups refine and develop their specific USP and business model. Here the first prototype can be finalised and assistance is provided to obtain industry feedback. This stage critically provides access to more mature startups in later stages of the Accelerator as well as to expert coaching, 1-2-1 mentoring and workshops, the Climate-KIC European contacts network and events.

The second stage of the Accelerator helps move startups with a well-formulated business model to the next phase: validation and customer acquisition. Teams can now focus on acquiring their first customers and an iterative process of business model validation whilst receiving continuing support from expert coaches and mentors and participating in programme activities and workshops. These more mature startups will be able to display their ventures in several internal and external showcase events growing their individual network.

The third and final stage of the Accelerator prepares businesses for a future of investment rounds and scaling. Teams get continued access to our office and meeting spaces, as well as to all events, coaching, mentoring and workshops. Startups in this stage of the programme are supported in preparation for negotiations with potential investors and partners and can tap into a huge network of investor contacts and partners.
