What we ask

We started Techitalia:Lab to support Italian founders growing their businesses in the United Kingdom.

Techitalia:Lab is an equity free programme, but in return we expect absolute commitment to the training and mentoring sessions.

This is a programme based in London. Startups are required to be present during the first and last week of the accelerator programme as most of the mentoring sessions and masterclasses will be held during these days. The second week has many mentoring sessions and masterclasses as well but founders can follow these from remote (althugh we strongly recommend to stay in London). For no extra cost, startups can exploit the London ecosystem and be based at the accelerator for the whole length of the programme (6 weeks).

FEES

The cost for accepted companies, thanks to our great partners and sponsors who help subsidise the programme, is £1,500+VAT for the programme (inclusive of full time office), for one person. Every additional person pays £500+VAT (max 4 people).

In addition, there is a 5% success fee on the funds raised from investors introduced by TechItalia Lab.
