On June 29–30th, Startup Grind Europe Conference will be streaming to a worldwide audience of attendees. With over 300 investors, 500 startups, and around 3,500 attendees, it’s sure to be an event that nobody in the startup world will want to miss. As we prepare for what is shaping up to be one of the biggest startup events of the year, many have been asking about the Startup Grind Accelerate Program.

While the Europe Conference is sure to be full of opportunities and networking for all who attend, we wanted to offer startups the option to apply for an Accelerate Program that will help maximize their experience by giving them more time in the spotlight and premium access to nearly every aspect of the conference.

Accelerate Startups have access to an exhibition booth, pitch opportunities, curated investor introductions, and further exposure with social media. Below you will find our carefully curated Accelerate startup list — the ten startups to look out for at the Europe Conference.

Ten Accelerate Startups to watch at Europe Conference 2021

NILA Technology Limited

Industry: SaaS ‎‎ㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎‎ㅤㅤ‎ㅤㅤㅤㅤ‎‎

Location: United Kingdom

NILA is hard at work using AI to find innovative Point-of-Sale solutions for restaurants. Their creations are already outperforming existing technologies and there’s no telling what kind of difference they will make in the world’s most appetizing marketplace.

Assemble Technologies

Industry: Marketing / Advertising / Sales ‎‎ㅤㅤㅤㅤ

‎‎Location: United States

At Assemble Technologies they are all about bringing people together. Their platform is #1 in matching companies with talented contractors. Their talent is trusted by major corporations including Netflix, Uber, and Shopify. The next time you’ve got a big project and you need to bring someone in to get it done, make like the avengers and Assemble.

Zwart Tech

Industry: Information Technology / Services ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ

Location: Netherlands

Another big startup in the business of finding great talent is Zwart Tech. The ace up their sleeve is the abundance of IT talent in Africa, home to a plethora of world-class software engineers. At Zwart Tech, their mission is to create equal employment opportunities for all, and in doing so they help change the lives of employees and employers alike.


Industry: Fashion ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ

Location: United States

If you’re into fashion, you’ll want to get to know Fashwire better. Their company provides benefits for designers and fashionistas alike, by providing a two-sided marketplace where designers can get relevant insight on what consumers want and consumers can find new up-and-coming talent to patronize. It’s a B2B, B2C, Win-Win type of thing.


Industry: Healthcare ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ‎ㅤ

Location: United States

I’m sure anyone would prefer to receive surgery from a surgeon who has put in serious hours of practice. That being said, hardly anyone would enjoy being the one who is practiced on. 8chili is developing an Immersive Reality training experience via a Virtual Reality Headset that gives medical professionals in training the access they need to real-life situations, without any of the risks. I’d recommend giving this startup a serious check-up.


Industry: Fintech / Financeㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

Location: Estonia

So many people in the world get giddy when companies they follow get close to their IPO. It’s an opportunity for their followers and supporters to get in on the ground floor. Raison thinks you should be getting in even earlier with a platform that allows users to invest in companies before their IPO. We can’t think of a Raison to not come to see them at the conference.


Industry: Hardware / IoT ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

Location: United States

Loud-Hailer is developing the future of automated actions triggered by one’s physical presence. Their technology gives our everyday electronics the ability to be self-aware of their own location, allowing them to interact with other devices around themselves automatically.


Industry: Fintech / Finance ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

Location: United Kingdom

If you spend a lot of time thinking of ways you can make the world a better place, Sustainably is the startup for you. They allow users to search their wide array of charities to find the one that speaks to them. Once you know what charity you’d like to support, Sustainably will automatically round up with each transaction you make and donate a little off the top to your charity of choice. Change the world sustainably.


Industry: Fintech / Financeㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

Location: United Kingdom

It’s common for businesses to feel overwhelmed when it comes to managing SaaS, but Cledara aims to simplify the whole process from start to finish. Their platform helps companies manage, control, and automate their SaaS so that they can scale operational processes, comply with regulations, and save money. You don’t need more sass in your life, you need Cledara.


Industry: Design / Graphicsㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ

Location: Spain

A good presentation can do wonders to inform, educate or even persuade, yet unfortunately, most presentations look the same. The problem is that everyone uses the same tools for every presentation and it’s hard not to get repetitive. Genially offers a new tool with immense creative capabilities that can help anyone generate presentations, infographics, dossiers, and so much more. Now that’s one presentation you won’t want to miss.
