EIC Accelerator 2021: The 10 most successful countries


In this article I will provide high-level data on the top #10 successful EIC Accelerator 2021 countries. The ranking is based on the total amount of funding raised. I will present for each country the breakdown in terms of funding type – Blended Finance/Grant First/Equity Only/Grant Only – and the average raised per company. I will then highlight the number of successful companies with a female CEO.
