In our accelerative aquarium we teach our fish to fly.
We bring lectors, people from business and non-profit world, we hand over our experience and we want every project to take off the ground. We create a community of people not afraidto deal progressively with all the problems and to be the iniciators of a change.
Good advice can be invaluable. Our fish are assigned mentors who share their experiences in project management, consult with them on their business plans and offer advice on how to make the impossible possible.
For a project to get off the ground, strategy, a marketing plan and finances must be managed through a solid management team. Our fish manage all of these aspects of a project’s life in the Accelerator.
Projects are better with support. Our fish are not alone in their quest for change. We create a community of people who care about changing society for the better and who are not afraid to try new, innovative approaches to making this change.
An idea is not enough to make change. We provide grants to those who have big ideas and savvy business plans to match.
