About the Gazelle Accelerator Programme

Gazelle Accelerator was born out of a need to support European technology-based companies with high-growth potential but whose expansion may be hindered by industrial fragmentation and their lack of visibility in the European market. The objective of the Gazelle Accelerator programme is to equip existing technology-based companies, in particular startups and SMEs, with the network and support that they will need to expand and become future European Gazelles. The Gazelle Accelerator team is made up of industrial, research and academic partners. In addition, complementary expertise is brought onboard to upgrade and accelerate promising startups and SMEs through this ambitious support program.
