In order to provide the Albanian start-ups with exposure and learning experiences, contributing to the development and expansion of their business operation, a start-up Match-making and Exposure Programme was designed, which will provide 45 Albanian start-ups the possibility to participate in exposure activities and business to business experiences in Germany for a period of two weeks (14 days, 12 full days in Germany, 2 days for travelling) with all expenses covered by EU for Innovation Project.
- Exposure Programme
The exposure programme shall serve to provide Albanian start-ups insights into the local (German) ecosystem in terms of actors and services provided, with hands on learning formats to support start-ups in their business development, as well as insights into the community-thinking through exposure to the community or exchanges with community members .
- One-to-one match-making exchange with German companies, start-ups or innovation support organisations
In addition to the exposure program, Albanian start-ups will be matched (based on their industry/sector with German start-ups, companies, or innovation support organisations, for one-to-one exchange and collaboration.
It is envisaged to have three cohorts of 15 start-ups each participating in the programme. Albanian start-ups that are selected for the programme will be represented by one individual, which may be the founder, CEO or any other employee involved in the management of the start-up. Accommodating partners for the Albanian start-ups can be established companies or start-ups, working in the same sector, with a similar product portfolio or in an area the start-up has formulated learning needs in.
All the start-ups from Albania that have developed their MVPs and are looking for ways to get exposure and learning experiences, to further develop and expand/scale internationally, please feel free to contact us to explore opportunities to get enrolled in the Programme and follow us to stay informed about the Calls for Applications.
