Do you invest in companies?

Participating companies receive governmental funding in services during the time of incubation. We also offer a support in raising a venture round or finding soft funding.

I am a solo-founder. Can I still apply?

Open icon Close icon

Yes, absolutely you can apply. However, keep in mind that solo-journey is harder than the one with founders. Our only requirement is how much time you dedicate to the company building: during the Problem/Solution fit stage the total amount from all the founders should be at least 40% of a full-time position and one of the founders must be committed to at least 20%. And during Product/Market fit, we expect even higher commitment.

Which startup companies are you looking for?

Open icon Close icon

We are looking for startup companies that work within digital health and wellbeing, have sustainability in their core and that have a service specifically targeted to the public sector or the potential to tailor their service for the public sector. But think outside the box! Keep in mind that your company’s solution may have potential applications outside your usual industry.

Who is eligible to join the program?
