Startups from the CEE region can now enroll for the fifth edition of the hub:raum Krakow WARP program. WARP Accelerator is one of the two programs that hub:raum has launched in Krakow. It is an academy for the CEE region created by Deutsche Telekom that is offering mentoring sessions by experienced entrepreneurs, workshops led by international experts and meetings with companies relevant to the further development of a startup idea. Applications for the fifth edition are now open and the program is carefully tailor-made to fit CEE startups.
The main focus of the program is on giving support to the innovative startups in the region in terms of providing them with market access, smart-money, mentorship and co-working space. These are to be provided by Deutche Telekom’s infrastructure and resources, thus making a fruitful collaboration between the corporation and the participating startups. The hub:raum’s “no strings attached” motto also applies to this program, meaning that startups are not required to settle for any equity nor cover any costs.
So far, over 2500 applications have been addressed to hub:raum Krakov during the four previous editions, out of which 46 startups from 17 countries have been selected to enjoy the WARP experience first hand. The overall WARP process has 5 stages, starting with the application phase that will be open until April 20, 2016. The official start of the program is between May 21 -27, 2016 in Krakow, Poland.
