Students! Join our innovation program

Students who have an idea they would like to develop are invited to join our ACCEL Student program. Through a combination of meetings, homework and guidance, they can develop their ideas to commercially viable products or services.

In the ACCEL Student program the students is set to work with either their own or other students’ business ideas. The work is done through a combination of meetings, home work and guidance sessions, and the result of this might be commercially viable products or services. All attending students will receive a diploma.
