ScaleWolf Pre-Accelerator Program

The Application period for this cohort is open from now until May 31, 2024. 

Our exclusive ScaleWolf Pre-Accelerator Program offers invaluable insights on accessing government markets not only in Europe but also in the United States, granting participants access to funding opportunities, public tenders, and compliance considerations specific to European and US government markets, paving the way for international growth and collaboration.

ScaleWolf Pre-Accelerator Program is a unique opportunity for companies looking to harness the power of dual-use technology in cloud, cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, lasers, hardware energy security and critical infrastructure or an emerging area waiting to be explored!

Pre-Accelerator Launch: July, 2024

Last Day to Apply for the next Accelerator: May 31, 2024

All our programming will be conducted in-person in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Each team participating in the Pre-Accelerator will be offered an equity free grant of up to €15,000. Grant amounts for each team will be decided by the investment committee of the acceleration fund. Grants will carry a binding legal agreement foreseeing a mandatory code of conduct and right to invest if a startup is selected to participate in our acceleration program.

Participants will go through various modules, engaging in workshops, mentorship sessions, and the 3-day hackathon to develop and refine their dual-use technology solutions. The program culminates with a focus on market entry strategies for both the U.S. and European government markets.
