Startup SuperNova is a springboard for start-up companies and a unique platform for the development of innovative projects of more established companies. Startup SuperNova is based on internationally proven methodology and many years of Icelandic Startups’ experience of supporting entrepreneurs and start-ups.
Ten teams are selected into the accelerator each year through a thorough application process and receive a financial grant in the amount of ISK 1,000,000. and access to fully equipped work facilities. The accelerator lasts for ten weeks and is divided into three phases; formulation, implementation and presentation.
Participation in Startup SuperNova aims to bring a product to market. Participants receive education and training in the development of their business ideas and access to a group of leading experts, including experienced entrepreneurs and investors, whom they meet at organized mentoring meetings. Regular events will be offered where they will have even more opportunities to promote themselves and strengthen their network. The fast ends with an investor day where participants present their solutions to investors, key players in the Icelandic economy and other guests.
Startup SuperNova will be operated in the heart of the Science Parks in Gróska, where you can find a boiling pot of innovation and entrepreneurship in Iceland in close proximity to universities, Landspítali and many of the country’s leading innovation companies. This location provides a unique opportunity for experimentation, knowledge flow and value creation.
Startup SuperNova is a joint project of Icelandic Startups and Nova. The accelerator seeks to build for-profit business solutions that have the potential to compete in the international market.
