Capital raising

As part of the training program, a key component is preparing for capital raising. Upon completing this stage, Connect will support entrepreneurs in the process of seeking capital. This includes presenting selected startups to relevant partner funds and providing referrals to other funds.

Pilot projects, high-level networking, and commercial leads

One of the key pillars of the training program is
the high-level networking opportunities that entrepreneurs gain with the corporate entities within the network. As part of the process, there is the possibility of identifying specific needs or pilot projects to be conducted during the acceleration process in collaboration with these corporations.
The negotiation of the terms of these pilots, such as scope, pricing, intellectual property, and delivery method, will be discussed and agreed upon between the corporation entity and the startup. If necessary and agreed upon by both parties, Connect can provide support throughout this process.
