Space3ac is looking for startups and tech companies willing to start or scale their business to Poland. Receive up to 65 k EUR of equity-free funding, get mentorship, and work with corporates. The recruitment for startups is open until the 17th of August. 

What is Space3ac? 

Space3ac is an equity-free accelerator bringing together large industry and technology startups that offer innovative solutions. The program provides financing up to 65 k EUR per team, collaboration with a corporate customer, mentorship from world-class business and tech experts as well as a soft landing in Poland. The accelerator is placed in the biggest stand-alone business complex in the country – Olivia Business Centre. Space3ac is located in Gdansk, northern Poland. 

Who is Space3ac looking for?

Space3ac is looking for a smart city, space sector, or transportation & logistics-focused startup projects answering specific technological challenges presented by the accelerator’s industry partners. If there are startups that would like to scale or grow their business in Poland but their solution does not match the areas of corporate interest, they can still apply to the program. Space3ac has launched a path for those startups called “sector agnostic”.
