SmartUp Accelerator brings together innovation actors in the consumer cleantech field around the Baltic Sea to make the region a forerunner in sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship. In order to reach the goal, we organise a yearly, international accelerator program startups and SME’s in the field. Last year our topic was smart homes and living, and this year we are supporting solutions related to smart and sustainable future mobility.
Now we are happy to announce that the startups for the second round of SmartUp Accelerator have been chosen! We received outstanding applications from all over the Baltic Sea region, ranging from innovative electric vehicles to on-demand transportation and route planning services. After scoring and reviewing all applications, we selected one startups from each participating country: Finland, Sweden, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Germany and Poland. After summer, each startup will meet their local host organisation and in September we will kick off the accelerator together in a bootcamp in Riga, Latvia.
