— What is TheHop
We are much more than a startup accelerator
You could say that TheHop is a start-up accelerator, but at Estrella Galicia we like to do things differently.
TheHop is a completely new concept: a collaborative entrepreneurship program in which different entrepreneurs cooperate together and form a part of the Estrella Galicia ecosystem, writing a different story in which we all reach our goals: they take the hop as companies and we incorporate their projects in our value chain.
The 6 participating start-ups share the same work environment, with training, mentoring and support from Estrella Galicia and major experts in entrepreneurship.
We present you a program in which we all grow.
Welcome to TheHop.
Discover TheHop Experience
Growing together. Launching your start-up while a company like Estrella Galicia supports you in your growth. Having at hand all the technical, human and material resources that you need in order to boost your project.
This is what TheHop Experience is all about. The selected startups will embark on a nearly 7-month passionate journey between Madrid and La Coruña, becoming essential parts of the Estrella Galicia ecosystem, making their projects grow while exploring new horizons.
Learn about TheHop step by step:
For a week, the winners are immersed in the environment of Estrella Galicia, learning about its culture, its more than 100 years of brewing tradition, its facilities, its resources, its work processes, identifying the pilot projects they will be working and on meeting with the people they will collaborate with throughout the program.
Participants spend four intense weeks in the Espazo TheHop in Madrid, during which they will be trained to grow as an entrepreneur. They will receive training in Growth Hacking from the best professionals in the industry, which will allow projects to grow quickly using innovative, scalable, replicable and measurable methodologies.
Galicia is to our brand what hops are to beer. Therefore, the participants in TheHop program will spend two weeks in La Coruña to gain a thorough understanding of the essence of Galician culture; from our cuisine, geography, language and customs, to the major Galician institutions and their managers.
Once the participants have completed the training and immersion processes, they will have five months to accelerate their companies in the Espazo TheHop, a unique and innovative work environment created exclusively for the program, and where they will have all the support of Estrella Galicia. We will develop their business plans and corporate identity, we will provide them with all the legal support and material needed and will have guidance from the best mentors.
