You are a start-up or young company with a focus in sustainability & circular economy, timber & wood, energy or agritech & food technologies?

You could use some extra support or would appreciate some feedback on your mission?

The Elevator is a five-month EU and FFG funded acceleration program which supports start-ups to reach the next level. Divided into an intensive core development workshop phase and a subsequent residency phase, we support between 7 and 10 selected start-ups.

During the core development phase we offer three different workshop moduls and individual coaching sessions (reflection sessions). In Module 1 we are focusing on the one hand on further shaping the business models and business plans of the start-ups on the other hand we help them to identify crucial project partners when it comes to market entry barriers, point out network effects and give them an introduction about ecosystem management. The second module 2 is about marketing, strategy and brand management as well as giving an introduction into online marketing and online sales. In the last module topics such as sales, market access and scale-up are in focus.

In addition to numerous workshop sessions, individual coachings, investor meetings and impulse lectures complete our ELEVATOR program and ensure holistic support for the international start-ups.

We are happy to have the Entreprise Europe Network on board which will provide a huge European network, various inputs for our innovation talks and a b2b match-making event.

The program is part of the European Digital Innovation Hub initiative and funded by the European Union, Federal Ministry Republic Austria Labour & Economy and the FFG.
