Beginning this autumn, RICAP will include two components: RICAP Academy, which supports entrepreneurs to validate their technology, by receiving feedback and customized mentoring, preparing them for the market, and RICAP Accelerator, the first Romanian technology accelerator, addressed to mature companies, offering them services through which they will perfect their financial proposal, connect with investors and obtain funding for the following development phase.
