About us

The Family Approach

Your business matters because there’s you in it. At ABC Accelerator, we take things personally. When we invest, we invest in you. In the end, it’s the people who are making it happen.
And we invest private capital. We are one of the few accelerators in the world who are completely independent, and we have our own VC fund. That’s why Your success is our success.

A Thin Line

There’s a thin line between living and surviving. And let’s face it, the latter is a matter of not having enough funds on your startup account. This is one of the reasons why we chose this region: it’s the region of potential, innovation, and improvisation, and lots of international startups are coming here to seek talent. South-Eastern Europe is becoming a leading area in innovation and the startups that are present here are becoming market leaders.

The Heart Of Europe

Being located in the heart of Europe has its own perks. The location allows the startups to spread East or West, get in touch with some of the most important European business hubs, which are located less than three hours’ drive from the ABC office. The ideal strategic location and size allows us to test and validate your product, which is crucial for the success of your company. ABC will assist you on the way, collecting the feedback, pivoting if necessary, expanding you to international markets with our partnership network. We are strategically connected to large, multinational enterprises such as IBM, Microsoft, AmCham, Ceed, BTC, and Cisco.

It’s the mindset.

long hours of coaching, workshops, and general education – it’s all about creating an entrepreneurial, go-getter mindset! It’s not just about getting ready for the Demo Day, but it’s about getting ready for a lifetime of the entrepreneurial experience. So get ready to pitch to anybody who would listen! And we will help. You will have the full access to everything: infrastructure, mentors, partners, and technical support. Partners, investment, mentors and other contributors will also play a key role in the journey towards success.

Let us create a region of innovation together and make sure the future generations can exist in prosperity and have opportunities to excel.

Meet the team that will make it happen for you.
