LEAP: THE NORDIC ACCELERATOR
LEAP is a 9-day accelerator program packed with relevant content from expert workshops to networking events and market testing. The chosen impact-minded startups participate in three consecutive Bootcamp trips in Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen. In all cities the teams learn to navigate in the foreign innovation ecosystem as well as where to work and network in the cities. Teams make valuable contacts and gain first hand knowledge of how to make an entry to another Nordic country, as they conduct validation of their concept in all three cities. The program is funded by Rising North, Young Entrepreneurs and The 6 City -strategy.
