e-Xcelerator logo

The E-Xcelerator® is an EBAN group set up to develop a working alliance between Accelerators and Business Angel Networks across Europe, focusing on engagement and best practice.

Accelerator founders and corporate investors seek the finest well-connected business angels to mentor and invest. Our members running Business Angel Networks and Funds seek the finest and best prepared growth companies. Corporations come together with high net-worth individuals to identify innovative businesses and technologies and foster the growth of a new generation of entrepreneurs.

At the last EBAN Annual Congress in March 2015, for example, the E-Xcelerator® ran a European Demo Day, selecting 25 of the top companies from EBAN Accelerator Members to pitch and interact with top European Business Angels, Networks and Funds with proven track records in deals and exits.

Participation in the E-Xcelerator allows corporate partners and business angels to hone in on specific startups that interest them the most through partnerships with accelerators. Take a look at our E-Xcelerator members below!
