Starterslift Investments funding

In December 2023, AcceptChain applied for financing from Starterslift Investments Fonds to further develop the business idea into a Minimum Viable Product (MVP).


Following the application, in combination with a pitch and question period, the Investment Committee has decided to grant a pre-seed loan.


Starterslift is a fund where financing is made possible by various government institutions. The goal of Starterslift is to bring innovative ideas to life, not to make money from them. The fund has already helped many startups in their first phase of development with pre-seed financing. In this way, new startups can always be helped in the early and riskiest phase of their development."
