Accelerate your business idea!

ABI Accelerator

For you that have an innovation or a business idea - as a private person, a company or from LTU.


Develop your business idea


The Accelerator help you improve your idea and business model during a number of workshops combined with own work. We base the accelerator phase on the Lean Startup methodology. In order to help you make well-founded decisions in how to take the next step with your idea. 

You get insights in how you want to work and develop your business. The ABI Incubator is aimed to those who started a business. 

We give you access to the innovative environment at ABI, where you can meet other creatives and committed people who are on the same journey as you are.

Program structure

Each workshop focuses on different subjects like experiences and advice, inspirational lectures and joint exercises. Between the meetings you are expected to do some independent work. You will also receive some individual coaching from our experienced business advisors. 

The program runs for 3 months and a new program starts in January 2018. We usually meet in person in both Skellefteå and Luleå, but it's depending on the participants. 

We arrange an overnight stay for those who have a long way to travel, when needed. 

We are the right incubator for you if you want to start a business in north Sweden with the world as your market. No matter where in Sweden you are.
