IMPACT ROBOTUNION'S ACCELERATION PROGRAM IS LED BY ISDI
IMPACT RobotUnion startups will have the unique opportunity to join a world-class acceleration program led by digital business school ISDI and learn from top experts all over the globe.
With a three-pronged emphasis on high performance, transparency, and live due diligence, IMPACT’s acceleration program is de-localized, which means that startups can take part in IMPACT RobotUnion while continuing to strengthen their local ecosystems.
Startups are accompanied throughout their acceleration journey by mentors: high-level experts from companies and organizations such as Google, Airbnb, Yahoo!, MIT, Booking.com, and more. These professionals work closely with the startups to help solve business and technical challenges that arise.
When you join IMPACT RobotUnion, you learn from the best and are pushed to grow your startup exponentially. Watch for the next open call to launch in 2019.
“One of the things IMPACT offers in comparison with other programs is funding, or equity-free funding, the second one is direct relationships with corporate partners … the biggest ones in Europe. I will highlight here part of the mentors that are behind here you cannot find in other programs.”
