”EIT Digital ARISE Venture program is very well conceptualized. It enables a team of ambitious individuals to transform a good idea into a working prototype. ARISE Venture goes the extra mile in order to help in product development and raising funds. Without all the financial and professional support that our team has received from EIT Digital and ABC Accelerator, we surely wouldn’t have been able to go from idea to product in only 4 months. We keep developing in hopes that we will soon be ready for the next step – ABC Acceleration program,” Celina Brumec, founder of Paraklito, described her team’s experience.
Špela Jovanovič Gaberšek, head of EIT Digital Cooperation at ABC Accelerator, said that last year’s pilot ARISE Venture program turned out to be a big success. In her opinion, this shows that early startups usually don’t have enough support available. “This is an excellent opportunity for early startups to get the support to develop their product and enter the market faster and easier. Being part of ARISE Venture program means utilizing all of the benefits of ABC’s twice awarded acceleration program and EIT Digital’s extensive network,” adds Špela Jovanovič Gaberšek.
Personalized support and funds are the most valuable help young companies can get. EIT Digital Venture program and ABC Accelerator provide all that and much more. In the stimulative environment of BTC City, Slovenia’s trade and business center, ambitious teams are welcomed by experienced mentors. With them, the teams work, learn and grow every day. ARISE Venture helps startups to enter the market confidently, while € 15,000 of financial support enables them to transform their idea into an MVP. With the best acceleration program in the region, ABC then makes sure that this MVP matures into a successful product which will leave its mark in the world.
