At STP Novi Sad on Friday, September 16, 2022, representatives of the Fund for Innovation Activity held a one-hour info session about the acceleration program – Catapult. Innovative companies in the early stages of product development and market conquest, as well as companies with proven market traction, have the conditions for participation in the program and the presentation was attended by residents of our startup community as well as other organizations that were interested in this topic. After the presentation of the program, the representatives of the Fund answered all the specific questions from startups about the application itself and what is expected of them during the program.
Catapult is a program that offers intensive three-month mentoring and financial support in the form of grants from EUR 20,000 (for the Ideation category of companies) to EUR 50,000 (for the Scale-up category of companies). Additionally, financial support of up to EUR 300,000 in grants is available to startups that provide qualified investment within nine months of the end of acceleration.
We remind you that the application deadline is October 17, 2022, and on this occasion we once again wish our startups the best of luck in the competition.
