Our Mission

We're dedicated to empowering entrepreneurial teams to turn their ideas into successful businesses. Our goal is to create a highly conducive environment that empowers founders and fuels innovation across Europe. Several times, SpinLab has been recognized as one of the best startup accelerators in Germany and Europe. 

Throughout the six-month accelerator program, startups receive hands-on coaching from experienced industry expertes. The startups benefit from a top-notch mentoring program and extensive connections to investors, established companies, and fellow entrepreneurs. Additionally, they have access to a fully-equipped co-working office located at Spinnerei, a historic cotton mill transformed into a vibrant center for creativity.

The SpinLab Group comprises Smart Infrastructure Ventures, a Venture Capital Fund, RootCamp, an Innovation Hub specializing in Agtech and Bioeconomy, and BITROAD, a consulting firm. Together, they constitute a robust network with deep expertise dedicated to propelling innovation forward.

Our strategic focus encompasses three primary domains: corporate innovation/venture clienting, ensuring startup excellence, and fostering ecosystem development.

SpinLab is funded through contributions from investors and established corporations.
