Alumni Network

Although the program ends after six months, our portfolio startups remain for longer. As a the result, they automatically become part of our alums network with the possibility to use our support, network, and access to our industry investors, also far beyond the acceleration phase.

Tailored Workshops

At NCA, we believe there is no one-size-fits-all path and no reason to repeat the same things over and over again constantly. At the beginning of each cooperation we support the founders in identifying needs and potentials thoroughly. Based on these insights we set the path for the coming months.
