From Cyprus to North Macedonia and from Greece to Bulgaria, over 30 high-potential innovative companies have been selected to follow Project’s Gazelle integrated hands-on acceleration programs, based on the principles of lean startup and experiential learning. Participating “Gazelles” have the chance to cooperate with universities and research institutions in the form of technology transfer agreements, from any region fostering thus transnational cooperation. Additionally, in the framework of the four Investment Forums (Greece, Bulgaria, Cyprus and North Macedonia), “Gazelles” that have exited the acceleration program have the opportunity to search for an angel investor in order to “run faster and further”.
