About this Program
THINK is a startup accelerator that supports early stage technology companies.
Accepted startups take part in a twelve-week global accelerator program with an international mentor network, workshops led by experts from industry, tailored coaching, introductions to investors, free office space and access to products with a value of over $300,000 from Google, Microsoft, IBM and Amazon, Stripe, Hubspot, Trello and many more.
The program is totally free and startups retain 100% of the equity in their company. Collectively THINK Startups have raised over 40m SEK and are redefining industries such as construction, auto, law, finance, e-commerce and more.
In collaboration with the Connect Angel Network all startups graduating from THINK’s program will qualify for participation in Connect’s investment springboard. After the program, the companies will start receiving investment support from Connect for a month which includes a dedicated business angel mentor and feedback from a panel consisting of two to three business angels, a business lawyer, a bank representative, an accountant and representatives from Almi Invest and Connect Sweden. Startups will then be presented to Connects network of 150+ business angels who want to get to know thriving entrepreneurs and new business opportunities.
- Smart City Track
Öresundskraft, Helsingborgs Stad and THINK Accelerate are collaborating to provide a dedicated ‘Smart City’ track for smart, home, city and energy related startups.
The H+ ‘smart city’ project is the largest construction project ever undertaken in Sweden, building schools, offices, shops and 4–5,000 new homes by the year 2035 to meet the demand of over 40,000 people who will move into the city in that time.
The project aims to be a model for future urban development and will radically transform the southern parts of Helsingborg.
We are eager to find startups with solutions around urban planning, waste management, smart building, smart home, smart mobility, smart grid, smart energy, smart production, smart government and open data.
