High Technologies and IT startups with already developed products, sales or clients’ approval are welcome to apply. Seed-stage startups can not apply for this program.

The startups will attend the one-week academy in Berlin and get the opportunity to meet potential financiers, partners and clients. They will also have the chance to find potential investors and enlarge their network within the frames of readiness training with international experts.

The project is aimed at creating a linkage between European and Armenian start-up ecosystems, as well as promoting Armenian start-up scene in Europe as a strong technological and R&D hub.
