We are happy to announce that the family of Challenger Accelerators is growing! After the first batch, centered in Slovakia and focusing on sustainability innovators, Civitta has launched a diversity-enabling batch in Estonia, and now the applications are open for Challenger Urban:Creative.
Challenger Urban:Creative is anchored in our cooperation with the innovation ecosystem in Eastern Slovakia, namely the Urban Innovative Actions project Košice 2.0. As part of the project, the Accelerator will support early-stage teams and startups developing innovative solutions which can improve city services or citizens’ quality of life. Košice is becoming the capital of creative industries in Slovakia, and we wish to support this ambition – Challenger Urban:Creative therefore looks primarily for projects in the areas of:
• Culture and Creative Industries
• Gaming Industry
• Urban and Digital Experience
Challenger Urban:Creative will help startups and teams find their problem-solution fit and product-market fit, prepare their legal and financial basics, and improve their communication, presentation, and marketing skills. One startup will be also awarded a cash prize of 10,000 EUR.
Applications are open now until April 17th.
