Ever wish you had an entire city with next-generation infrastructure to test out your startup on? That's one thing Danish accelerator Accelerace can hook your startup up with this fall, and we're looking at their new program as a chance to cover the accelerator properly. We've written about a number of the companies they've helped accelerate, but for the first time we're taking a deeper look at the accelerator that bills themselves as "an actual accelerator". Looking at their own stats, since 2008 they've worked with over 188 startups and spin-offs, and their startups have received more than €72 million in funding.
As a brief overview of the Copenhagen-based accelerator's normal operations, companies participate in the Accelerace acceleration program for six months, where Christian Hvashøj Schaarup says that they work approximately 200 hours per company to mentor their business and prepare them for future venture capital.
