Estonia’s leading business incubator is looking for early-stage impact companies!

Startup inkubaator_new batch 23

A new application round is open for Tehnopol Startup Incubator’s 6-month growth program, and this time the spotlight is on impact companies’ aka zebras!

Estonia is known as a unicorn factory, but now, it’s time for the zebras to shine! Unlike unicorns, zebras really exist in the animal kingdom, with four hooves firmly on the ground. A zebra company is both profitable AND improves society. They want to provide solutions to broader problems in society like climate change, human rights, etc. They may grow a little more slowly, but they are also more stable; they are long-distance runners, not sprinters. Tehnopol Startup Incubator is there to empower the founders and do it for the long run.

Startup Incubator Batch 08 will kick-off in January 2023. Application round is open until January 20.

We are waiting for early-stage startups that develop products and services in the following areas:

  • Energy
  • educational innovation
  • sustainable agriculture & food production
  • material recycling & circular economy
  • reducing the impact of climate change

.. and other products and services with a high social impact. Sounds like you?

We will help you:

  • Design a sustainable business model
  • Develop a product that impresses customers
  • Reach your first clients and stretch your wings in foreign markets
  • Arrange contracts and legal relationships

  • Workspace in Tehnopol’s modern open office

What we expect:

  • A scalable technological business idea
  • Dedicated team

  • Company registered in Estonia (e-residency, startup visa)

Our shared goal is to develop your business and only 10 selected teams will be accepted to the 6-month growth program. The deadline is January 15, but the expert panels are already happening, so the earlier you apply, the higher are chances to be chosen.
