Ljubljana, Slovenia — A number of changes are unfolding in ABC Accelerator these days, as the intense 6-month program, Smart Living & Health, comes to an end. After the successful Demo Days, when over 150 investors saw our startups pitch, the teams are spreading their wings and taking off from ABC’s nest. Once again, the group of ABC Alumni will grow larger as it’s joined by 10 excellent startups already making waves in Slovenia and globally.

At the same time, the ABC Accelerator team prepares to accept the next group of startups into its third program – Commercial Tech. The crown jewel of ABC’s programs, it will give startups the unique opportunity to benefit and synergize with ABC’s main competitive advantage – a tight partnership with BTC City, the SEE region’s largest commercial and logistics centre. BTC City is home to over 4500 companies and is visited by 21 million shoppers each year, making it the perfect space for startups to test their products and find their first key customers.

The call received around 360 applications until its deadline on March 15th, 2016. In the year since it started operating, word about the ABC Accelerator has spread over six continents. Beside startups from Europe, companies applied from countries including Mexico, Brazil, Canada, Australia, Vietnam, Russia, Pakistan, and Nigeria.

The selection process went on for more than three weeks. After all the applications were processed, a selection of 30 startups made it to the final round. Those chosen were interviewed by ABC’s selection committee, which was made up of ABC team members, our in-house investors, and industry professionals working with ABC as mentors. Based on the pitches and interviews, 10 of the very best startups were invited to join ABC’s Commercial Tech program starting on April 1st, 2016.

Once again, we’ve got a very international group of startups on our hands. For the first time, startups from outside of Europe made it into an ABC acceleration program. Among the nationalities of those coming to Ljubljana in April are French, Mexican, Serbian, Italian, Romanian and Ukrainian.

In line with »Commercial Tech«’s broad meaning, the selected startups are developing a range of different products – from a smart city governance platform, to a container freight booking platform. It certainly seems like we’ve got a very interesting generation of startups on our hands – one that will undoubtedly reach for the stars! Here they are, the gloriuos 10:
