The program

Global Innovation Accelerator is a tailor-made accelerator for companies that contribute to the Swedish and global transition towards a sustainable energy system and that are ready to internationalize.

The goal of the program is for the participating companies to get access to an international market or value chain chosen by the company and to find potential customers, investors or partners. A program round lasts between 12 and 18 months and focuses on business and market development support.  The program content will be based on each participating company’s individual needs, e.g. market mapping, support for standardization and certification issues, participation in a conference / trade fair, investor search, etc
