10-week market validation. Ideally, you'll walk out with the first customer/partner in a new European market.
This is an accelerator, and it will be intense.
The main goal of the program is a successful market validation for your business model in a European market. Ideally, you are leaving the program with your first customers and/or partners in Europe and a strong growth plan to follow up on, including financial planing and a scaling strategy. But we clearly want to point out that there is no guarantee for that!
There's also the possible result of having no market fit or being not ready for the European market yet. In this case, you are not walking away empty handed, but with important experiences and lessons learned for internationalization and how to run a successful market validation (no market fit is also a success!).

Attending the program might count towards your de minimis aid.
De Minimis papers are sorted out with you if you are selected. If needed, it is a requirement to be a part of the Euro Scalers program to fill out the forms and be below the de minimis limit.
For almost every company, de minimis is a paper exercise.
Some companies that have already received a lot of public aid might not be eligible to receive additional aid. Applications are subject to a check.
