How it works

Our products

UP21 isn't your typical incubator. We might shock you at first, but that's only to get you ready for the incubation journey and its finish line – the pitch day, where long-lasting partnerships are made and investment deals are closed.

Founding a startup is one thing, turning it into a profitable company is quite another. We're ready to help you make it happen.

This is arguably the most important day of your startup. We'll make sure you're 110% ready to come, see, and conquer.

1. Entry
Describe your dream journey. Go ahead, don't hold back.

2. Idea Board
We like your big dream and want to make it even bigger. Meet us personally and let's discuss it.

3. Main Board
Well done, we're ready to take off. Meet with our board to discuss details, numbers and let's roll.

4. Navigation Check
Based on your strengths and weaknesses, we will prepare  customized navigation plan.

5. Incubate
Welcome onboard. Let's pick your co-pilot — and let the adventure begin.

Submit your project now!

Project not finished? Not a problem. We still want to hear about it. And help you fly. Submit your project, even if it's not ready yet.
