Nobody said it was easy. We're looking for the world's brightest and most driven entrepreneurs so we can help you smash your goals and elevate them to the next level. But we won't take just any old startup through our coveted doors. Check out the requirements below.
Strong business relationships and first customers are crucial for helping an early stage startup grow and scale quickly. We can help you land pilot projects with global players such as Porsche, Deutsche Bank, DELL, Leipziger Gruppe, VNG, and AOK.
Our accelerator operates in both English and German, as long as your startup can communicate fluently in one of these languages we welcome you to apply! Furthermore, if you want to expand internationally, we have excellent partnerships with international companies and the HHL that can help you plan your internationalization right from the start.
We’re unique in the sense that we take ZERO equity, shares, or intellectual property from your startup. Your company stays as much yours when you finish our program, as it was before you ever started with us. Our main goal is to push you to success.
We are located in Leipzig. During our focus weeks, please come to our headquarter to get the most out of our program. The rest of the program is online. We’re housed at Spinnerei in Leipzig, in a re-invigorated cultural and art industrial hub in Leipzig. The environment here will inspire you to be your best, day in and day out.
