Sweden-based tech consulting company tretton37 is calling for startups in need of software development excellence but lacking the financial resources. Ten tech companies will be selected and offered free support in areas such as programming, design, and strategy.
Since announcing the program in June, several applications from companies in different countries have been submitted. One is from a Nigerian startup that wants to solve youth unemployment in Africa. Several European companies focus on solving various climate issues, for example by helping companies become emission-neutral or reducing environmental impact by choosing the right diet. Another company has a business idea to increase the number of female engineers.
“Startups are often the ones driving innovation and change in society, but the economic climate makes it increasingly difficult for them to secure funding and afford competence in all necessary areas. Knowledge can change the world, and we believe that our Startup Boost program can make a big difference for these companies”, says Deniz Yildirim, CEO of tretton37.
Startups can apply to the program until September 30th 2023, and tretton37 will then select the ten companies believed to have the greatest potential to improve the world. The selection criteria include the stage of the company, the founders’ background, and the social and environmental impact the company aims to achieve.
“Startup Boost is open to tech companies worldwide, and we will strive to choose startups from different geographical locations. An important aspect of the evaluation process is the founders’ motivation and the company’s goals. Is it to increase inclusion in society, combat climate change, reduce corruption, improve access to healthcare, or something else? The earth is a vast place and different regions have different challenges”, says Deniz Yildirim.
A tailored plan for how tretton37 can best assist each of the selected companies will then be created. Since tretton37 operates with geographically distributed delivery teams and serves several global companies as customers, the geographical location of the startups is irrelevant.
