ark challenge

To increase the output and the founding of small and medium sized innovative companies seems one of the actual hypes all over the world. Tech accelerators and incubators popping up all over the world, spreading from major tech hubs like San Francisco and New York throughout the U.S. and international. The ARK is one of the incubator program that’s outside a major city. The ARK is just getting started in Northwest Arkansas.

The ARK Challenge is looking to recruit 15 startups, who will get all the same things you can expect from accelerators elsewhere, including funding, coworking space and access to mentors. All chosen to participate will receive $18,000 in funding in exchange for 6 percent of equity, and will have the opportunity to work out of the Iceberg CoWorking Space in Fayetteville, Ark.

Another interesting hitech incubator was found last year in Austria. The International Incubator Hagenberg (IIH) wants to attract specifically international founder to come to Hagenberg in order to found a Hitech startup company. Several very interesting international startups were already found, including FL3XX a aviation scheduling and routing planner or isiQiri, a startup that developed and patented a new light grid for touch applications or industrial applications.

So check out the International Incubator Hagenberg offer, they are still open for interesting international contributions!
