Features of the acceleration programme
The acceleration programme undertakes both activities common to all the participating projects and activities specific to each of them.
Said activities are structured as follows:
- Individualised roadmap: Individualised analysis of each project and jointly setting out a roadmap that will establish the acceleration plan and identify the value creation milestones at the company.
- Mentoring: Developing the business idea with a mentor who will coordinate the support and guide the project through the acceleration programme. The mentoring sessions will be customised and adapted to the needs of each start-up.
- Training: Work sessions and training capsules aimed at developing your skills in fields related to your business, the entrepreneurial ecosystem and your personal competencies.
- Networking: Sessions and events with various types of investors (Business Angels, Venture Capital, Corporate Ventures...).
- Demo day: A day on which the start-ups will present their business projects.
