We’re opening our 4th call – searching for IoT and IoE startups.

Providing funding, and access to our global mentorship network with industry experts, the startups will benefit from direct access to our offices in Munich, Silicon Valley, and starting in 2017 – Bangalore India.

We will choose up to 10 Internet of Things and Internet of Everything startups across the whole spectrum of the field, from consumer to industrial. From our new office in Munich, we are also able to provide direct access to German industry.

 

The ten selected startups will be invited to spend 3+3 months in an intensive program in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We are looking for startups with a product ready to scale – and if you already have revenue or users, that gives you a better chance of being accepted.

Our goal is to improve your team, connect you with customers and help you scale, and connect you with investors.

To get there, we leverage our unique position in BTC City, support of partners such as Cisco, Triglav insurance, EnaA.com and a global network of VCs and business angels. Startups have the time to apply until the 31st of July. 

 

Primarily, we find startups from Europe really cool, but because of the increased interest of international startups, this call is open for companies from across the world. Startups do not need to have their businesses located in Ljubljana, but they will have to spend the first three months of the program here. In practice, many startups stay also in the passive three months of the program, since in that period they are closing investments and deals made during the program and after the Demo Day.
