What You Can Expect from the Accelerator
The EnergySpin accelerator is a 10-weeks part-time program established in Vassa, on the west coast of Finland. Participating in the accelerator is 100% fee-free.
EnergySpin’s team doesn’t just advise you, they work with you shoulder to shoulder each and every day to build successful stories. At EnergySpin, the goal is to get you to launch your idea to the world.
The accelerator is built as a part-time program, however, you will need to be physically present only during specific weeks, when all the workshops, coaching sessions, and meetings happen. The rest of the time you will be able to work from your home base.
After the program, EnergySpin offers the startups participating in the program an opportunity to continue to use the co-working space and services for an additional three months. Their team will continue to work with you to develop your business and customer relations and introduce you to service providers and new partners.
Instagrid, for example, is one successful graduate from EnergySpin, developing an advanced portable power pack to replace highly polluting petrol and diesel generators. This alumni from the 2019 Fall batch received €8.5 million Series A funding led by SET Ventures in early 2020.
