Adyen Accelerator

Through Accelerators, we engage a community of startups and social enterprises that have been founded in order to better the world we live in.

Why should you apply?

Startups learn from an in-person program of workshops, talks and activities, along with a range of networking opportunities (with Adyen employees, investors and our Adyen network).

Learn fast and iterate

Evaluate the impact your business is having and workshop how you can multiply that effect.

Hear from the experts

Discuss your current challenges with fellow impact entrepreneurs and Adyen subject matter experts.

Pitch to win

Win dedicated support from Adyen on an initiative of your choosing, that will scale your business.

2023 program information

Following the success of our 2020 and 2022 Amsterdam editions, we’re launching 2023 editions in the Dutch capital and further afield.

Interested? We look for early-stage, direct-to-consumer businesses who are making the world a better place. The events are in-person, so participants are required to travel –at Adyen’s expense–and be available for the full programme and final pitch event.

Pivot Jewelry, 2022 alumni

Pivot was founded by Alice Moxley in 2019. Her mission: to enable those who are living in hostels and in between roles to begin a fruitful journey back into employment, by making jewelry.

Alice and business partner Sabella traveled to Amsterdam in 2022 to participate in our week-long Accelerator, at the end of which they pitched some of Adyen’s senior leadership, including CFO Ingo Uytdehaage, and were chosen as 2022 winner’s. Since then, they’ve worked closely with our UK marketing team to increase their paid media efforts.
