The Summit brought 200+ leaders from accelerators from across Europe and beyond to discuss and debate the current state and future of acceleration. Using collaborative workshops and interactive talks, the purpose of the 2-day conference was really to identify the top trends and challenges facing the accelerator sector and viable models and ideas to reinforce the future of acceleration.
Leveraging the ideas and content generated from the Summit, we’ve developed this whitepaper which focuses on what the group identified as the top trends in acceleration as well as the challenges, opportunities, and models for each.
Startup acceleration, which started 10 years ago this March by Y Combinator has grown leaps and bounds since its founding. The sector has grown almost exponentially and evolved enormously since that time. Although the acceleration sector continues to grow and present opportunities, there are numerous challenges that are facing the sector.
