What is the Baltic Impact Accelerator?

The Baltic Acceleration Accelerator supports the growth of new companies in the Central Baltic region (Sweden, Finland, Latvia, and Estonia) within the framework of Profit, Planet and People.

The accelerator programmes includes:

  • Developing business models 
  • Assistance in establishing a presence outside home markets
  • Support to raise investments to accelerate growth
  • Nurturing partnerships between businesses in the Central Business region.

Our first programme’s cohort is scheduled to launch in January 2024. Over six months, 32 selected startups and SMEs (8 from each partner country) will receive online individual training valued at 4 000 euros, as well as product development services, also valued at 4 000 euros. Following this, there will be two more cohorts for additional 64 companies. 

The acceleration programme is free of charge.

The initiative is realised within the Baltic Impact Accelerator project that is funded by the Central Baltic Programme 2021-2027. More information about the project can be found here.
