TechPeaks Launches Trento-Based Accelerator Program

The Trento RISE Association, in partnership with Trentino Sviluppo S.p.a., has launched TechPeaks, an accelerator program based in Trento, in the Italian Alps.

The program aims to create over a hundred new innovative companies in the ICT sector. To this end, it will provide hackers, designers, entrepreneurs with €25k non-equity funding, free lodging, food, office space, services, access to a network of world-class mentors, and visa for 6 months.

A call (read here in Italian) to select projects is scheduled to open on February 5, 2013 and close on April 5, 2013.

The program is divided in two stages:
– a first 6-month phase from May, 30 2013 to November, 30 2013;
– a second (optional) 12-month phase, from December, 1, 2013 to November, 30, 2014. In this stage, companies can receive up to €200k in funding to match an investment raised from private sources.
