Startup Yard offers

Program: StartupYard is a 3 month, fully-remote mentorship based program for early to seed-stage companies, that leverages deep corporate partnerships with telcos, banks, tech companies, and many others, to help a high tech company develop its business with access to a top-tier network.

Funding: Startups may be offered €20,000 in initial seed funding via a convertible note from StartupYard if they need it, and we operate a follow-on fund for startups that perform well during and after the program. This is in addition to over €1 Million worth of  perks offered through the exclusive GAN (Global Accelerator Network) partner program, including free access to professional services.

Network: More important than money, Startup Yard startups gain access to their extensive network of mentors, investors, and advisors from Central Europe’s leading firms in Technology, Finance, Telco, Software, and Retail.
