CONNECTING GEO-INNOVATION ZONES ACROSS EUROPE AND BEYOND
From artificial intelligence, to blockchain, to computer vision, to cybersecurity and much more, a variety of cutting-edge technologies originate from Eastern Europe. This region — from Russia, to Ukraine, to Belarus; from the Balkans, to the Baltic states, to Central Asia — is home to vast talent pools, reserves of entrepreneurial energy, and considerable investment capacities.
‘East-West Acceleration,’ a program of Alliance Tech, aims to bridge this emerging geo-innovation zone to the global market — in particular through Western Europe’s innovation-oriented areas, which offer a variety of development opportunities.
- Startup acceleration: Alliance Tech and its partners help Eastern European startups meet the needs of international players. Next-gen acceleration programs are designed with institutions from the countries of origin and destination to make startup development beneficial to all.
- Cross-European partnerships: Alliance Tech and its partners help private and public players build partnerships across the continent and co-design forward-looking development strategies – through academic and research programs, inter-city cooperation, industrial alliances, ecosystem integration, etc.
FOCUS AREAS & APPROACH
Through the rich background of its founders, advisors and partners, Alliance Tech’s key areas of expertise include Digital Health, Fashion Tech, Food Tech, Industrial Tech, Digital Commerce and Fintech, as well as blockchain and Web3, among others, in a sustainable perspective.
While supporting innovators in an individual, tailored way, Alliance Tech designs and promotes Integration Programs. These can be described as sets of practice-based methodologies that aim to develop and deploy innovative technologies though existing or emerging value chains.
