DEEP Startup Ecosystem Accelerator

Accelerate your Ecosystem Project With DEEP

DEEPSEA – The DEEP Startup Ecosystem Accelerator © is the first global startup ecosystem accelerator program, launched in 2018. It’s a cohort-based program to implement 10-12 innovation projects, boosting the growth of new vertical and geographic ecosystems.

Take the chance to become part of the DEEP community of more than 250 ecosystem builders worldwide, learn how to use data-driven strategies and create a sustainable growth path for your initiative.

The 6-week program brings together a cohort of 8-12 projects worldwide. You will join an intensive program with world-class mentors and topical workshops in an online format. At the end, we bring all participants together to the DEEP Demo day during our physical conference in spring 2023, where you pitch in front of an international audience to find partners.

Who should participate?

  • Managers of startup programs, accelerators, or incubators.
  • Economic Development agencies, investors, innovation scouts, and startup relations managers.
  • Entrepreneurial non-profits and community builders.
  • Founders looking to re-invest in their ecosystems.

Note: This accelerator is not for startups, but for startup support initiatives.
