SLOW DOWN TO STARTUP: the Blue Bank innovation decelerator
The Blue Bank innovation decelerator is for entrepreneurs and creators from anywhere in the world who dare to venture in a different direction. It's a self directed program for projects in all stages hosted in the Westfjords of Iceland.
Who is it for?
Startups, individuals with ideas, organizations, companies or anyone working on an innovative project can apply. In particular we are looking for people who are open to new experiences, self-motivated and self-driven, and willing to share a nice community vibe in our little village. You can join as a team or as an individual.
What do I get?
If you are selected for the program, you will be hosted at the Blue Bank innovation hub's co-working space in Þingeyri. You will get free accommodation in a house shared with other creators. We will be visited by inspiring and experienced mentors who will help you move your project forward. You will get a chance to connect to yourself, the environment and fellow participants in a unique setting.
What is it not?
We are a small village of 250 people in a remote area of Iceland, that has become a hub for digital nomads and creatives of all sorts. We love welcoming innovative people and hosting them. However, we are not able to invest cash into your project. This is also not a full time program, i.e. you need to be self driven and make the most of your experience.
12 participants will be selected. Apply by June 25th.
September 16 - 23, 2019
