Our vision is to empower diverse entrepreneurs through business acceleration, fostering innovation, enabling rapid scaling, and driving global economic growth and tech advancement.
Since its establishment in 2018, BAU has supported the growth of promising tech startups in N.

The organization assessed over 400 innovative ideas, ultimately investing a total of €533,000 in the top 10 startups. Phase 1 received co-financing from the Fund for Innovation and Technology Development (FITD) of N. Macedonia.
