What is the MITA YouStartIT Validator?

The MITA YouStartIT Validator, in short ‘Validator’, is a pre-accelerator programme first launched in April 2019. The programme is designed to help startup founders improve and validate their idea for a startup project. The Validator embraces the Lean Startup methodology with its “fail fast” concept. Up to 10 startup projects can be selected to participate in the programme. From these we will choose the best four to join the acceleration phase within the MITA YouStartIT Accelerator Programme and receive a pre-seed grant of up to €30,000 to continue the project.

Who should apply?
Teams with at least two founders and whose projects are still at idea stage. At least one founder must be technical. Startups who apply for the Validator Programme must be ready to take their project to the YouStartIT accelerator programme.
