A new Helsinki-based CherryonTop Accelerator launches a 10-week accelerator program and investment model for early stage startups. The first program will kick off on Thursday 26th of January, 2017 to which the application period opens today.
CherryonTop Accelerator helps startups develop their business with a free accelerator program and investment packages. The accelerator will also provide advisory services for corporate startups. The objective is to co-think, co-design, co-develop and co-invest in digital-first startups.
“We are entrepreneurs with 80+ years of experience in digital business, from strategy to design to technology to business development. Our focus will be on digital products, services and platforms that have a real story and that can also positively impact our digital, everyday lives”, says Tiina Zilliacus, serial entrepreneur and one of the four founders of CherryonTop Accelerator.
Growing the startup stack together
CherryonTop Accelerator creates value fast by helping startup founders to develop their own startup stack. This so-called stack includes the team, product, users, data, story, vision, business model, funding and networks.
The program is free for early stage startups, while corporate startups will be charged an admission fee. We also invest in early stage startups with capital and resource investment packages. Our involvement can begin pre-incorporation, or the founders can be further along looking for product market fit and seed funding.
“We wanted to design an accelerator program that we would’ve needed when we first started our businesses. We are all inspired by working with ideas and products that fit a specific purpose, but also have potential for driving a bigger change. Today, we are proud to announce CherryonTop Accelerator, a startup acceleration program and investment packages. This is going to be so much fun!”, continues Sami Häkkinen, Chairman of the Board at Frantic and a Founder at CherryonTop Accelerator.
