At this point, we are sure that you all know what the Accelerator Programme is about; but, just in case you have not heard of this before, let us recall that it is an effort, co-funded by the European Commission, to encourage digital innovation all throughout Europe. For that purpose, 16 international entities (accelerators) have been chosen to select SMEs and entrepreneurs. These will receive not only funding, but also coaching, mentoring and support by technical and business experts. But apart from that, FIWARE technologies will facilitate the creation of their digital businesses, by offering a set of building blocks that can be combined and, thus, build a new app.

Of course, each and every one of the accelerators has its own requirements to apply and present your proposal. You can find more information in our webpage or you can contact us through any of our social media or means of contact. FIWARE Accelerators are already receiving projects and working on their selection, but some of them will close their open calls soon. Do you want to know all the details of their open calls and dates? Then, keep reading!
