Two months of hard work finally ended very successfully. We are very happy about the second place in the Start-Up Open Accelerator Program of the Italian pharmaceutical company Zambon, endowed with 50.000 €.
Together with 10 other start-up companies from all over Europe, we were selected in autumn for the program, which is already taking place for the 3rd time. This year the focus was on neurodegenerative and respiratory diseases.
Open Accelerator prepares young companies for the market. During the intensive coaching and workshop program around business plan, pitch deck, investor approach, market entry strategies, finances and legal content, these topics were worked on in detail. Each start-up was assigned a network of mentors and consultants, whose specific knowledge and active support we were able to benefit from.
After 4 long weekends in Milan, many hours of online coaching and little sleep, we were not only able to take home the Open Accelerator Award at the end of the day, but were especially pleased about the opportunity to establish a strategic partnership with Zambon Group.
Generali Welion and Deloitte Consulting also honoured us within the framework of the programme: With 10,000 euros each for investment and consulting services, we will continue our cooperation.
