The Startups Accelerator LUISS ENLABS announces its entry into the Global Accelerator Network (GAN), the global community that gathers the best accelerators in the world. Just three years after its birth, LUISS ENLABS, a joint venture between LVenture Group and LUISS Guido Carli University, has achieved such remarkable results to be invited to join this exclusive international network. In fact, 94% of startups accelerated by LUISS ENLABS closes round of fundraising involving third-party investors within a few months after graduating from the acceleration program.

 

“For over five years GAN accelerators have given 3300 startups the power to create and grow their business, wherever they are. As we’ve watched LUISS ENLABS grow over the past few years, it’s evident they are supporting companies in meaningful ways,” – said Patrick Riley, CEO of the GAN – “Because of that track record and their overall ethos, we’re thrilled to have LUISS ENLABS join the GAN and look forward to all they will bring to the network, both in Europe and across the world.”

 

Joining GAN will allow LUISS ENLABS to work with the leading industry players and to offer to its startup international opportunities of training and networking. Born out of the Startup America Initiative of the White House, GAN currently includes 75 of the best accelerators and organizations in the startups industry on a global scale, including TechStars, MuckerLab, Startupbootcamp and Flat6Labs, which overall have offices in 125 locations in the world. With the strength of this powerful network, GAN supports accelerators also by collecting useful industry data and best practices and attracting the best deal flow and investors to support accelerators internationally. 

 

All accelerators inside the GAN offer short-term acceleration programs based on mentorship, with extremely favorable terms and conditions for entrepreneurs and excellent results. LUISS ENLABS organizes a five-months Acceleration Program, which brings startups to generate revenues on the market and close following rounds of investment, thanks to financial resources provided by LVenture Group and a 360 ° support in terms of business development, networking with investors, management and technological development.

 

According to Augusto Coppola, Director of LUISS ENLABS Acceleration Program “For us, becoming part of the Global Accelerator Network is not only a recognition of the quality of our work, but also a great asset to pursue our goals. One of our priorities, at the moment, is to focus our efforts on helping startups to expand on international markets and we are sure that the Network will provide us with valuable resources and opportunities.”

 

“LUISS ENLABS is a place where to look beyond and think without borders and the entrance into the GAN is the confirmation of a winning strategy” declared the General Manager of LUISS Guido Carli Giovanni Lo Storto “This is the spirit that we instill in our students at LUISS, through business education paths and an increasing quantity of co-working and sharing spaces where young people can create and think as beyonders.”
