Our Story

Startup Wise Guys is a mentorship-driven accelerator program for early stage B2B SaaS, Fintech, Cybersecurity and Defense AI startups, providing seed capital (up to €50K), office space and most importantly – world-class mentors.

The intensive 3 month accelerator program is focused on validating, developing and selling products to business customers. Over 250 international and local mentors with B2B startup experience help startups move through those stages much faster than they would on their own. Founders are also prepared to sell their vision to investors, and the program culminates in a Demo Day, where startups get to present to venture capitalists and angel investors.

Post program, startups join the alumni community of 185+ startups in more than 40 countries and become eligible for invite-only alumni events focused on business development, fundraising and experience sharing.
