Accelerator Program

SoPact’s program for social entrepreneurs lasts for twelve weeks and aims to accelerate social entrepreneurs and social innovation in Skåne. The goal is that the program should result in that the participating entrepreneurs are ready to sell their product or service to customers, initiate partnerships or be ready for external investment. The program is carried out in Helsingborg in collaboration with Helsingborg City and Lund University, Socialhögskolan, Campus Helsingborg and starts with two inspiring start-up days in Skanör.

In addition to the opportunity to get to know each other, an introduction is given to the three main themes of the program. 1) Business development and financing 2) Impact assessment and Agenda 2030 as well as 3) Communication and marketing as tools for acceleration.

During the following ten weeks, a knowledge sprint will be held every Tuesday. Each week also includes time with SoPact’s team, which is complemented by access to mentors and networking meetings. The program ends with that potential partners, financiers and customers are all invited to listen to all the participating entrepreneurs’ pitches.

It is totally free to participate in the accelerator program and SoPact does not take part ownership. As a participating entrepreneur, the organisation behind will be the recipient of a negligible support (försumbart stöd) of a total worth of SEK 68,000. The försumbart stöd/negligible support corresponds to the value of participating in the accelerator program.
