Application Process

Do we need to have our tech inhouse?

For companies where technology is the core of their business, it is crucial to have their tech in-house. On the other hand, for companies where technology is a means to solve a problem, outsourcing software development can be an option to extend their capacity, although it carries some risks.

Application Process

Do you accept startups that would compete with my company?

Startups that could be competitors will never be accepted and part of Sting at the same time. However, once a startup has left us and become alumni, after six months we could accept and work with another company that has a similar business idea.

Application Process

We have already raised a substantial amount of funding, can we still join?

Yes, it is definitely possible to be part of our program even if you have already raised money. Companies often have angel investors onboard before joining Sting.

Application Process

We’ve already participated in other programs – why should we join yours?

Sting offers more hands-on support than any other accelerator in Europe, and access to the most extensive network of entrepreneurs and investors. More than 9 out of 10 startups recommend Sting to other startups.

Startup Programs

What coaching methods do you use?

One size doesn’t fit all and that’s why we tailor our coaching to fit your individual needs. However, if you were to describe our coaching style in three words it would probably be ‘lean and iterative’. We use frameworks like Lean Startup and Lean Canvas, and work in sprints.

Will our IP be protected?

We treat the proprietary information our companies share with us with 100 percent confidentiality, whether they declared it confidential or not. We couldn’t do what we do if we didn’t. We don’t sign NDAs because we meet so many startups that it would be impossible to keep track of all the NDAs and the related information.
