Time for business!

10 years ago, the startup accelerator Green Light was established at VŠB-TUO. It was spontaneous and new. Something that was just getting off the ground in the Czech regions. Although the marketing support was not so significant, many interesting projects were already applied for.

"I still remember how we were in the first Accelerator and were finalizing our presentation at the Startup Show. It was the Green Light Accelerator that gave us confidence, thanks to which we then won the Czech accelerator and got to America. From this point of view, startup accelerators have their role, because there they change the mindset of people. I would definitely recommend Green Light to anyone thinking of starting a startup because it's perfect for the start. Today, I already participate as a mentor and see how much care each participant receives. And then it's up to you." concludes Jan Tkáč from the AVE soft company and mentor of the Green Light Accelerator.
