WSO2 Launches Global Startup Accelerator Programme
WSO2, a business in technology for digital transformation, has announced the launch of its global startup accelerator programme.
‘WSO2 for Startups’ goal is to help early-stage companies that are developing innovative mobile or web application solutions by giving them access to WSO2’s solutions, as well as support for an initial period.
The chosen startups will have access to software such as WSO2 Choreo, a SaaS application development suite with AI tools, and WSO2 Asgardeo, a client identity and access management (CIAM) solution for security management, alongside support from a senior architect and the WSO2 client success team. Candidates will also receive $2100 every month for the initial three months to cover their running costs.
According to Sifted, the UK is the reference point for Europe’s tech landscape and tops virtually every chart and metric in the region. In 2022, its 48 unicorns and 40,000 startups got the most funding, closed the most deals and realised more exits than any other country in Europe and is an increasingly mature tech space.
“There is a thriving tech startup community here in the UK and we believe that this is an excellent way to incentivise the development of innovative business projects enabling startups to fully explore the open-source tools that we offer to the market. We are not only providing them access to Choreo and Asgardeo, but also Ballerina, our programming language. We think that there are many startups that will benefit from the WSO2 ecosystem in a quick and objective way,” says Ricardo Diniz, WS02 VP and General Manager for EMEA.
Which startups can apply
In order to be considered eligible, the startups must have been operating for at least two years, have less than $10 million in financing and less than $1 million in ARR. Applications will be evaluated by WSO2 quickly and a response will be provided within two to three working days once a startup has applied.
