Description

Description

Bridgeway Company Accelerator is a Europe initiative empowering entrepreneurs on their journey to build great companies. Entrepreneurs can build their startup and learn from the best. All in one place. Starting a company is not for the faint of heart. Founders must be audacious, innovative, and disruptive. At Bridgeway Company, we challenge ourselves to also embody those qualities in how we help startups through both our mentorship and our startup accelerator program. Execution is everything. With our accelerator program start ups have access to awesome mentorship, hands-on sessions with startup experts, and a great office space where to work with other smart, talented founders from around the world. We run our accelerator program for SEE in Belgrade. Our mission is to make company development as easy as possible. That is why during the program we will help teams successfully start up and sustainably grow. Community Starting a company is solitary and challenging. Working with other people going through the same challenges makes a huge difference. Founders who’ve gone through our program tell us that the building a company inside a community is extremely valuable. Advice Access to a network of founders, mentors, and our staff, will give guidance when its needed the most. We’ve built startups before. We make sure that our partners don’t make the same mistakes we did. Heads-on Support Bridgeway brings in a wide variety of experts focused on marketing, culture, startup accounting, product design, mobile, user testing, sales, and more. We’ll work together on business and product strategy, growth and metrics, and investor pitches. Participation in the program gives access to Bridgeway’s great network of startups, supporting organizations, investors, scientific organizations, research units and universities as well.

Bridgeway Europe Startup Accelerator je inicijativa koja osposobljava preduzetnike na putu ka izgradnji velikih kompanija. Preduzetnicima pomažemo da razviju svoju ideju i uče od najboljih. Sve na jednom mestu. Započinjanje preduzeća nije za one slabog srca. Osnivači moraju biti neustrašivi, inovativni i spremni na izazov. U Bridgeway akceleratoru, stalno se trudimo da i mi uključimo te osobine u proces kojim pomažemo startapima, kroz naš mentorski program i akceleratorski programa startupa. Izvedba je najvažnija. Sa našim akceleratorskim programom početnici imaju pristup odličnim mentorstvima, praktičnim sesijama sa startap stručnjacima i odličnim kancelarijskim prostorom gde mogu raditi sa drugim pametnim, talentovanim osnivačima iz celog sveta. Naš akceleratorski program je fokusiran na Jugoistočnu Evropu. Prvi program je otvoren u Beogradu 2016. Naša misija je da omogućimo što lakši razvoj inovativnih kompanija. Zbog toga tokom programa pomažemo timovima da uspešno počnu i održivo rastu. Zajednica Započinjanje kompanije je izazovan, ali i usamljenički process. Rad sa drugim ljudima kroz iste izazove predstavlja veliku razliku. Osnivači koji su prošli kroz naš program svedoče da je izgradnja kompanije unutar zajednice izuzetno vredna. Savet Pristup mrežama osnivača, mentora i našeg osoblja će pružiti smernice kada je to najviše potrebno. Pre akceleratora smo vodili startape. I vodimo računa da naši partneri ne prave iste greške iz kojh smo mi učili. Glavna podrška Bridgeway donosi širok spektar stručnjaka usmerenih na marketing, kulturu, razvoj kadra, vođenje projekata, računovodstvo, dizajn proizvoda, mobilne uređaje, testiranje, validaciju, akviziciju korisnika, prodaju i još mnogo toga. Radićemo zajedno na strategiji poslovanja i proizvoda, rastu i metrikama i na predstavljanju investitorima. Učešće u programu daje pristup Bridgeway-ovoj odličnoj mreži startupa, podršci organizacija, investitora, insituta, istraživačkih jedinica i univerziteta.

Service Examples

Startup nTropy/PassBy (goran.ocokoljic@passby.biz) developed PassBy CountFi which is a compact wireless device and part of PassBy Smart Analytics solution that automatically detects various WiFi clients around installed location. Due to specific of early development stage of local startup ecosystem, which results in lack of hardware focused investment funds in Serbia or region in general, they had issues getting not only funding, but any contact with relevant investors. Using Bridgeway accelerators network we got them to pitch Silicon Valley based Menalto Advisors, and get relevant introductions towards VC funds enabling them continuance of operation.


University of Belgrade, Center for Career Development (http://www.razvojkarijere.bg.ac.rs - centar@razvojkarijere.bg.ac.rs) is helping students develop those knowledge and skills that will be of importance to them in employment; to assist in gaining work experience during studying and learning about the world of business via internships, and to prepare students for a successful transition to the next level of career development after graduation, but had difficulties responding to inquiries of students looking into entrepreneurial path. Bridgeway Accelerator developed rolling program helping students start up, as well as lecture adapted by our startup and business development experts for Center for Career Development helping around 50 students get introduction and overview to available resources for crucial points of entrepreneurial path.


Entrepreneurs and startups, not only in developed startup ecosystems, are unsure about whom to approach within the businesses they’ve identified. Corporates feel they are lagging behind in digital innovation, some sectors (ie retail) more than others. These issues are especially exposed regionally.

Bridgeway Accelerator is organizing conference (startupconference@bridgeway.company) - South East Europe Innovation Summit in Belgrade bringing together in one place startup, corporate and government stakeholders to discuss challenges of business innovation, both globally and locally. This approach results in initiation of relevant discussion and several collaboration initiatives.
