Start-up acceleration and Open Innovation projects

Open Accelerator, an accelerator for new tech companies, offers solid support for groups that intend to develop business initiatives in line with the region’s specific production and characterised by offering physical products: “start-up hardware”.

This acceleration programme supports the development of tech start-ups during the stages of validating what they offer, market access and growth. This accelerator promotes open innovation projects among start-ups and established companies to support their innovation processes. Finally, it works to develop and bring the innovation ecosystem to life by organising activities such as networking events, challenges, hackathons and Start-Up Weekends.
