Our Mission

The project

Launched in 2018, our 18-month, 5-step program is built for startups based in Israel, Italy, France and Poland. ST provides semiconductor startups with support to accelerate the ramp up of their product offering and speed up their time-to-market.

The accelerator will select companies based on their compatibility with ST's roadmap and vision, with the aim of identifying future hardware-intensive unicorns and fostering long-term collaboration, based on ST- or jointly-developed SoCs and/or intellectual property.

Tailored for hardware and semiconductor startups growing their business, we ensure a facilitated access to ST’s portfolio of products, development tools and technologies.
Our program focuses on your needs. We provide consulting services and a privileged access to ST’s R&D, manufacturing, laboratories and testing environments.
