Estonia’s leading business incubator is looking for early-stage impact companies!
A new application round is open for Tehnopol Startup Incubator’s 6-month growth program, and this time the spotlight is on impact companies’ aka zebras!
Estonia is known as a unicorn factory, but now, it’s time for the zebras to shine! Unlike unicorns, zebras really exist in the animal kingdom, with four hooves firmly on the ground. A zebra company is both profitable AND improves society. They want to provide solutions to broader problems in society like climate change, human rights, etc. They may grow a little more slowly, but they are also more stable; they are long-distance runners, not sprinters. Tehnopol Startup Incubator is there to empower the founders and do it for the long run.
Startup Incubator Batch 08 will kick-off in January 2023. Application round is open until January 15.
We are waiting for early-stage startups that develop products and services in the following areas:
- educational innovation
- sustainable agriculture & food production
- material recycling & circular economy

.. and other products and services with a high social impact. Sounds like you?
