The World's First Startup Decelerator

About this Accelerator

Decelera is a unique program for seed impact startups seeking to scale and grow. We invest in purpose-driven startups, led by seasoned entrepreneurs that are working to solve the world’s greatest challenges with technology.

We have created a new model for funding seed startups. We run a ‘free of charge’ 10-day program in Menorca, Spain, to which the top 20 selected startups will be invited to participate. Selected startups will be eligible for a 150k€ convertible note, with the best performers potentially receiving follow-on capital of up to 2M€ from us. We also invite a close network of investors to the program that we co-invest with.

We work intensively with the selected startups, partially remote and partially in-person, to reframe and address their biggest challenges, measure KPIs and validate both the team and business, alongside our top-notch startup experts such as LJ Erwin (ex. a16z, Google), Jason Eckenroth (founder at ShipCompliant, investor), Martin Varsavsky (Founder, Jazztel, Fon, Prelude Fertility, VAS Ventures), Maria Raga (CEO, Depop), Manel Adell (Ex CEO at Desigual, Puig), Tim Varner (Active YC community member, Investor and PE Advisor), etc. among others.

Some of the most successful startups that participated in previous editions are Verse, Dozens, Datasaur, TOMi.Digital, Flown, Declarando, TeiaCare, Senseye, Mercaux, Electronic ID, etc. among others.

Your application will not take more than 5 minutes to complete. Applicants that successfully pass the first phase of evaluation will be invited to apply to the second phase.

Apply now, the first phase of applications closes on 29th of April!
