"Blue Lake provides a valuable opportunity for Ukraine’s most promising internationally-focused startups"

Important COVID-19 information. Blue Lake acceleration programme is currently on hold while we are assessing the situation.  Startups are welcomed to submit their applications these will be reviewed once we have figured out what comes next. Meanwhile, we keep open the startups open office hours if interested book here.



We are a London based Startup Accelerator with a focus on Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Belarusian startups. We are product and go-to-market obsessed, supporting early-stage startups with global ambitions. 


At Blue Lake we love emerging markets for a simple reason is that is where the undiscovered opportunities often are. We combine the best parts of an early-stage VC fund and a startup accelerator to create our unique take on how to best support early-stage startups.

Blue Lake Accelerator = Funding + Individual Support

Before a startup joins the Blue Lake we assess what help it may require and then a structure an individual specific programme. Some of the key elements that a startup can expect when joining Blue lake.
