What is a Citizen Accelerator?

In connection to the Active and Assisted Living Forum in Aarhus September 23rd-25th, we will arrange a Citizen Accelerator focusing on health and ageing. The goal is to gather a group of relevant startups and scaleups and give them qualified sparring and market validation from experts and citizens.

The name of the event is “Citizen Accelerator”. We will gather a panel of citizens and experts and through different exercises we will test and make marked validated business development to help the startups and scaleups find a better product/market fit and accelerate their access to implementation in the market.

Through a series of workshops and mentor sessions you’ll be able to gather a lot of important information super fast, and finally you’ll pitch your company to the jury and get a chance to pitch to the entire crowd at AAL Forum 2019.

What will you get – and it’s all free for you!

  • 1,5 days boot camp with expert mentors
  • Pitch coaching
  • Meetings with investors
  • An exhibition booth to show off what you’ve got (worth approx. EUR 1000)
