Sven Illing participated in the IDCEE 2013 Panel "Startup accelerators in CEE: Local accelerators vs. Western accelerators. Are they competitors or partners?"

Sven Illing is passionate about helping entrepreneurs. Sven has been doing just that during the past 10 years at a tech incubator, startup accelerators such as HackFwd and at his investment firm iCapital. Prior to that, at the age of 22 Sven co-founded a software company Vision Group. Currently he is a co-founder of GameFounders, the first gaming startup accelerator in Europe. GameFounders runs a 3-month program in Tallinn, Estonia. The accelerator has 100 gaming industry mentors from 15 countries, it has invested into European, Asian and South-American teams and held demo days in Helsinki, Paris, London and San Francisco.
