The startup program

With its accelerator and incubator programme, IDEA hosts startups for a period of 9 months, offering them the highest quality of training, workshops and mentorship so as to turn their innovative ideas into viable businesses.

The 9 month program

is deployed in two phases:


Accelerator tied to specific deliverables where the training, classes and workshops take place and the teams are evaluated to ensure that they qualify to progress to stage B. Hard work and devotion is required by all teams on a weekly basis to maintain a passing rate.


Incubator, where they will enjoy even more benefits while finalizing the first version of their product or service (MPV).

IDEA hosts startups from the idea stage to the stage that they become viable businesses for 9-12 months.

During their hosting, we offer them strong support, such as legal, accounting, HR, marketing and technology services, through the network of our significant partners we also provide to them training, mentoring, seed capital, networking and access to investors when they are ready.

We estimate the total package of cash & services IDEA offers to each startup, to be well over €58,000, depending on their commitment and utilization of services. Though IDEA itself is a non-profit organisation, we apply strict criteria & milestones, so that only hard-working startups will reach graduation from our program.
