The partnership underscores the commitment of both organizations to fostering innovation, supporting early-stage startups, and contributing to the growth of the entrepreneurial community.
The collaboration wouldn’t have been possible without the continued support of Impact Hub Tbilisi’s longstanding partners: Startuperi and EFSE Entrepreneurship Academy. Their commitment to nurturing startups has played a crucial role in the success of the Acceleration Program.

Drawing on the experience gained, the team established a local acceleration program designed to address the challenges of the local startup ecosystem. Since its inception, the program has seen four editions and a total of 81 startups, collectively securing over 1 million euros in investment and grants.
