Introducing a specialization in Enterprise Tech start-ups.

As summer continues but slowly gives way to autumn, we're excited to announce that applications are open for our Autumn Accelerator 2024 program for early-stage tech start-ups.

From October 15 to November 28, 2024, a group of innovative start-ups will join us on an intensive journey designed to support them with the right know-how and an investment of €40K. This year, we are thrilled to introduce a new specialization within our program: Enterprise Tech. This means we still provide an industry-agnostic program, and in addition, a group of teams working on Enterprise Tech solutions will receive special bonuses during the program.

What are Enterprise Tech start-ups?

Enterprise Tech start-ups focus on developing technology solutions to meet the complex needs of businesses and corporations. These start-ups work on a variety of solutions including, but not limited to:

  • Enterprise Software: Tools that help businesses manage operations, from customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) to HR and supply chain management.
  • Cloud Computing: Services that offer scalable and secure cloud storage, processing power, and applications accessible over the internet.
  • Cybersecurity: Solutions designed to protect companies from digital threats, including data breaches, malware, and cyber-attacks.
  • Big Data Analytics: Technologies that enable businesses to process large volumes of data to gain actionable insights and make informed decisions.
  • AI and Machine Learning: Systems that leverage AI and ML to automate processes, enhance decision-making, and improve operational efficiency.
  • and more.

Enterprise tech start-ups play a crucial role in driving digital transformation within organizations, helping businesses increase efficiency, reduce costs, and maintain a competitive edge in their respective markets.

Why the focus on Enterprise Tech?

The decision to focus on enterprise tech is driven by our collaboration with Accace, one of the founders of AceON Accelerator. Accace currently employs more than 800 professionals globally and provides a range of services in accounting, taxes, law, payroll, and HR solutions.

By partnering with Accace, we provide start-ups with an opportunity to interact with potential customers and even test their solutions in an enterprise environment. This focus allows startups to gain invaluable insights and feedback directly from end-users within a corporate setting, ensuring their products are not only innovative but also practical and highly relevant to market needs.
