Tehnopol Startup Incubator

Startup Incubator_new batch 23

It’s the beginning of a new era in Startup Incubator. Let’s welcome the Zebras? The who? Zebras! 

The application round for batch 08 is closed!

Start-ups are known for their ability to adapt quickly. As a founder you surely know how important it is to keep up with trends, better yet – be ahead of them. Zebra companies rise by observing the trends in the market and adapting to the demands of consumers. Unicorns on the other hand attempt to disrupt the general market by introducing something entirely new. The Zebra era has begun, you heard it here first!

Zebra start-ups are both black and white – profitable and improve society. In addition to profit goals they keep in mind sustainability aspects, like climate change, human rights etc.

It doesn’t matter if you want to become a unicorn or a zebra – it is important that we are ready to support you on your way in the Startup Incubator. Of course, you are fully capable of building your own business. Otherwise, you would not be a founder. But with the advice from experienced mentors and the help from us, the development of your company is simply 10 times faster, many mistakes can be avoided and we open the doors for you that would otherwise remain closed. You always have someone to count on!

We will do great with each other if you have an early-stage technology startup, a great team and you have already progressed from an idea level to an MVP or a prototype. To apply, your company must be registered in Estonia. No ambition is too high!

We have a clear motivation to help you succeed – all our services are free of monthly fees; we only take 2% participation option. So, if you succeed, we succeed with you!
