"The Gazelle Accelerator was born out of a need to support European technology-based companies with a high-growth potential but whose expansion is often hindered by the industrial fragmentation and by their lack of visibility on the European market" the project team stated.

Gazelle Accelerator is one of the acceleration and incubation programs promoted by EIT Manufacturing. The main objective is to identify existing technology-based companies, in particular SMEs and start-ups, with the network and support that they will to expand to become future European Gazelles. 

As an external partner of the program, Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini will be responsible for defining and implementing the booster camp aimed at companies and manufacturing startups in the coming months.
