Earlier this year, we launched the business Acceleration Program. Over the last 3 months, more than 80 startups have submitted their applications. Only four of them were accepted into the program. Among those, we carefully selected the startups that we believe will have a valuable impact on the future of the frontline worker community.
As part of the program, the four candidates will collaborate with business customers and benefit from our team’s expertise and insights into frontline work to speed up their go-to-market and product/market fit. After integrating their innovative solutions into business, customers have the opportunity to test the proof of value in a 3-month, free-of-charge trial phase. The overall goal is to create a joint success story where the startups’ integration gets listed on business’s Marketplace.
Without further ado, here are the final four!
