After three intense months filled with development, networking and pitching, the third SoPact accelerator program has now come to an end.
We have had the pleasure of getting to know a bunch of amazing people with great ideas – ranging all the way from free and accessible education to sustainable Jamaican fast food.
BootCamp at Skanör
Highlights of these three months has been our Bootcamp where we all got to meet for the first time and working on the ideas and the progress of each startup participating in the accelerator program. See all photos on Flickr

During the Accelerator Program #3 we also had the startups pitching and networking with the two Swedish politicians Kent Härstedt and Niklas Karlsson.

We want to thank everybody who has been a part of making this accelerator program the best program yet in many aspects and of course, the greatest thanks goes out to our amazing startups:
