Thermi Accelerator operates as a pre-incubator and co-working space. It provides to its members hosting, networking opportunities and consulting services. Members only or open to the public events and workshops are scheduled sporadically to exchange views, knowledge and connections. The THERMI SA Accelerator is the new way to host, empower and promote fresh and innovative ideas.
WHAT IS IT?
The accelerator will operate as a pre-incubator and co-working space. It offers a complete solution for young (and not so young) people who wish to turn their business ideas or the results of their research into innovative companies.
Members of the accelerator will receive guidance during the process of commercialization of ideas or the application of research results, i.e. during the critical period of converting ideas – research results into innovative products or services. In this way, entrepreneurs save their precious and scarce resources by focusing on the correct way to approach customers, partners and capital.
Applicants will have to describe their ideas fully, describing their unique selling point and their differentiation from the competition, analysing the target market and marketing strategy and describing the team and founders’ background. Once selected all teams will have the opportunity to be hosted at the incubators premises and receive advice on all entrepreneurial matters. They will have to attend a series of Masterclasses with the following subjects:
The teams have weekly meetings with coaches so their progress is measured. The program is concluded with the Pitching Event where all teams will have the opportunity to present their ideas in front of investors and raise capital. A committee will select three winners that will receive financial awards and services.
