HOW WE HELP STARTUPS
– FROM IDEA TO STARTUP TO MARKET
Wondering if your idea or your team is the next big thing? We provide the support you need to find out. We have a dedicated team of professional business, pitch and investment coaches who can guide you towards a successful company. We offer some of Sweden’s most well-renowned growth programs for tech and deep tech startups.
We have tailored the route to success for startup companies since 2001 and our passion lies in building value into your company so that it develops and grows faster than it would outside this creative environment. Through our network you can get access to investors and external experts and you will easily make connections with other tech and deeptech startups and companies in our community.
FROM IDEA TO SCALEUP
A 6-month incubation program to help people with passion and drive develop their ideas into sustainable businesses. It is also a network of co-working spaces where those ideas can start growing into the companies of the future, surrounded by other entrepreneurs who are also setting out on their journey.
Who do we target? The program targets an early-stage startup. Either the startup only has one employee (founder) or there is a team, but the company needs support in a space to grow – at Ideon Science Park!
What does the program offer? We offer a way for you to form your idea and your team in a supportive setting. During this period, we help you form your value creation and to test your first business model. We start with the early validation of the idea. At this stage many are still struggling with managing work and building their business.
BUILD YOUR STARTUP
A 9-month incubation program; 3 months of workshops, networking and peer to peer learning and 6 months of continuous development of you and your business.
In this program you will gain increased knowledge about business development, financing, and what is required to build business concepts and an organization.
GROW YOUR STARTUP
An adaptable incubation program for startups in the continuous phase after BUILD.
If you have developed your business further in one of our incubator programs or at another incubator, or have developed experience of running your business – then you are welcome to apply to GROW.
Who do we target? The program targets a mature company who’ve been in a business incubator program before or have the equivalent experience of running a business. There is already an initial team, but the company needs support in a space to grow – at Ideon Science Park!
What does the program offer? Master classes on different topics related to growing your business Review meetings every 6 months Continuous CEO reports An assigned business coach Access to all business coaches with various expertise through our booking system Toolbox accessible for helping – description of verification grants, step program, workshops
WE WANT TO MAKE THE NORDIC REGION LEADING NOT ONLY FOR STARTING, BUT ALSO SCALING UP BUSINESSES.
A program for companies in the continuous phase after GROW.
If you have developed your business further in one of our incubator programs or at another incubator, or have developed experience of running your business – then you are welcome to apply to SCALE.
Who do we target? The program targets companies that have 10 million in venture capital and can manage on a runway of 12-18 months. The companies are facing strategic challenges and have a consolidated business model.
What does the program offer? We offer the possibility to attend larger events approximately 4 times per year. Based upon the clustered, common interests of the companies, we choose what events these could be. Examples are attending SLUSH, the world leading startup event and Web Summit, Europe’s biggest tech conference. These travels could either be self-financed by the companies or financed by the incubator – with an outcome with a higher value, and organized in a more efficient way when shared with a bigger group.
