Sorainen Estonia has partnered with two Estonian start-up accelerators – GameFounders, the first gaming accelerator programme in Europe for start-ups, and Startup Wise Guys, an accelerator for early stage technology start-ups.
GameFounders chose Sorainen as legal advisor and mentor to establish the best structures for start-ups to be supported by the accelerator as well as to advise firms on all legal questions. Start-ups which gain the support of GameFounders will have access to the competence of 60+ gaming veterans, CEOs, CFOs and developers. Through the accelerator programme they also have access to partnership deals plus a network of angels and VCs interested in gaming start-ups.
Sorainen is also advising start-ups that have signed up with Wise Guys, which as a start-up itself provides seed funding and an intense mentorship programme to early stage technology start-ups. Up to 10 new Wise Guys teams are accepted for each cycle of acceleration. Start-ups will get seed funding, mentorship (from experts at SMLXL, Toggl, Flattr, SoundCloud, Springboard, Strata, Accel Partners etc) and closing demo days for investors in Tallinn and London.
