Short description

The BioSense Institute invited innovative startups from the IT and agricultural sectors to participate in the third edition of the accelerator and thus continues the good practice of providing support to innovative entrepreneurs in the development of ideas that will contribute to the digital transformation of agriculture.

The BioSense accelerator is the first in this area exclusively aimed at domestic technologically innovative companies, which link their further development to the agriculture and food sector. Through intensive training, personal mentoring and access to BioSens research resources, the BioSens accelerator will provide domestic IT entrepreneurs with the opportunity to contribute to the digitization of agriculture through the development of new solutions, as well as the improvement of existing ones.

The program will gather more than 20 mentors from the country and abroad, who will use their expertise, experience, contacts and ideas to help new technological entrepreneurs to test the feasibility and sustainability of their business idea and digital solutions, and to turn their ideas and products into a sustainable business venture.

The application deadline is February 1, 2023.

The program will be implemented during a three-month course in the spring of 2023, in the period from March to June, and is intended for startups that:

  • They deal with the development and implementation of innovations and IT solutions for agriculture and the food sector;
  • They solve a real problem on the market by working on improving existing solutions or digitizing previously analog solutions.

Up to ten startups will be selected to participate in the program. The work will take place through two weekly workshops (live and online) held by experienced experts, and thematic meetings, meetings and other events will play a major role. In addition to mentoring support, the teams will also have scientific support from the BioSense Institute in transferring knowledge, access to necessary data sets, scientific research equipment, and/or test farms - resources that are necessary for the development of digital products.

The best teams will have the opportunity to participate in a large regional final event (Demo Day), where they will present their idea to an international audience and an international network of investors.

Applications for the third generation BioSense accelerator are open until February 1, 2023.

To apply, a pitch deck of 10 slides and a completed application are required.

You can find more detailed information about the BioSense program and the application process itself on the official website.
