CONNECTING GEO-INNOVATION ZONES ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND
From artificial intelligence, to blockchain, to computer vision, to cybersecurity and much more, a variety of cutting-edge technologies originate from Eastern Europe. This region — from Russia, to Ukraine, to Belarus; from the Balkans, to the Baltic states, to Central Asia — is home to vast talent pools, reserves of entrepreneurial energy, and considerable investment capacities.
‘East-West Acceleration,’ a program of Alliance Tech, aims to bridge this emerging geo-innovation zone to the global market — in particular through Western Europe’s innovation-oriented areas, which offer a variety of development opportunities.
- Startup mentorship and acceleration: Alliance Tech and its partners help Eastern European startups integrate to the global market through individualized mentorship programs. Locally-adapted acceleration programs are designed for institutions from the countries of origin and destination to make startup development beneficial to all.
- Cross-European partnerships: Alliance Tech and its partners help private and public players build partnerships across the continent and co-design forward-looking development strategies – through education programs, academic and research programs, industrial alliances, ecosystem integration, etc.
