The application for the Investment Ready Programme (IRP) is now open. The accelerator programme is looking for ventures with a scalable solution and an interest in sustainability as well as social impact. From all applications the most promising teams will be invited to pitch their idea at the workshop in Vienna and will receive valuable feedback from experts. Overall, between 12 and 16 teams will be able to take part in the three-months programme.
The accelerator with the focus on social entrepreneurship is supported through the Impact Hub network which has partners in over 60 locations and Social-Impact International. Currently IRP is working with an Austrian investor group that is ready to invest over 100,000 euros in the best projects of the programme. Participants will not only be encouraged to formulate goals and develop strategies in workshops but will also be supported by coaching from mentors (e.g. by Boston Consulting Group) and investors who will make them ready to pitch their project at international events.
