Rubik Garage is an equity-free acceleration program aiming to support startups from CEE. We are helping early-stage startups get to their first paying customer, raise investment or go international.
“We know why most early-stage startups fail and we wish to prevent that from happening by supporting them to find solutions that would maximize their chances for success. There is no one-size-fits-all magical recipe, but there are key indicators that, when analyzed correctly, can simplify the startup journey“, said Valentin Țoc, Accelerator Manager.
The accelerator started with a Founders Bootcamp in Piatra Neamt. Four months of acceleration will culminate with a Demo Day in September, where startups get the chance to pitch their startup in front of investors. For the most motivated teams, the journey will continue in the next 6-12 months – our team will offer their full support to help them raise an investment round.
