It’s a new era in Startup Incubator. Let’s welcome the Zebras? The who? Zebras!

Start-ups are known for their ability to adapt quickly. As a founder you surely know how important it is to keep up with trends, better yet – be ahead of them. Zebra companies rise by observing the trends in the market and adapting to the demands of consumers. Unicorns on the other hand attempt to disrupt the general market by introducing something entirely new. We believe in both unicorns and zebras, and in Startup Incubator we will help you find the right path to success!

Zebra start-ups are both black and white – profitable and improve society. Meaning that in addition to profit goals they keep in mind sustainability aspects, like climate change or human rights etc.

It doesn’t matter if you want to become a unicorn or a zebra – it is important that we are ready to support you on your way in the Startup Incubator. Of course, you are fully capable of building your own business. Otherwise, you would not be a founder. But with the advice from experienced mentors and the help from us, the development of your company is simply 10x faster, many mistakes are not made and we open the doors for you that would otherwise remain closed. You always have someone to count on!

OPEN CALL for all early-stage startups! Apply to Startup Incubator Batch 07 starting in September!

We will do great with each other if you have an early-stage technology startup, a great team and you have already progressed from an idea level to an MVP or a prototype. To apply, your company must be registered in Estonia. No ambition is too high!

We have a clear motivation to help you succeed – all our services are free of monthly fees; we only take 2% participation option. So, if you succeed, we succeed with you!

Ivar Siimar

The Startup Incubator gives access to the best mentors and investors. It is possible to discover and achieve everything on your own, but through mentors and their network it saves time and achieves results many times faster.

Ivo Remmelg

We support the growth of companies in every possible way. The work must be done by the entrepreneur himself, but good advice on how to do this work more effectively can be obtained from Tehnopol's mentors.
