Fledge11 Accelerator arrives to Barcelona
Fledge the conscious company accelerator is expanding, replicating its award-winning, impact-focused business accelerator beyond Seattle. Next edition is taking place in Barcelona, operated by BPE Barcelona Plataforma Empresarial, a consulting firm with extensive experience in assisting companies to increase their competitiveness and to expand internationally.
There are hundreds of business accelerators in the world. Fledge is unique in two ways:
- It is a for-profit company focused on fellow mission-driven for-profit companies. Through its own existence, it is proving it possible to do good by doing business, rather than doing good through philanthropy.
- It does this by investing in its startups, using a unique revenue-based equity investment model, investing in growth in revenues rather than acquisitions or IPOs.
Fledge11, the eleventh instalment of the Fledge accelerator, will run from September 18th to November 17th 2017 in Barcelona.
Applications are being accepted now up until July 28th 2017.
