Disclaimer: German Accelerator is currently funded by the German Ministry for Economics and Energy until December 31, 2020. The Ministry is periodically reviewing all its programs and is determined to continue the program beyond the current funding period.
To qualify for any German Accelerator program, your company has to meet our selection criteria:
Silicon Valley, New York, and Southeast Asia: During your application, you choose which class you want to join, and at what time. The selection process takes approximately six weeks from application deadline until acceptance.
Life Sciences: We accept applications for our Boston-based program four – six times per year, and application deadlines are posted on the website.
No fees, no equity – all our programs are free of charge for our selected participants and we don’t take any equity. We provide free individual coaching and mentoring as well as free office space in the location. However, you are responsible for your own associated costs such as travel and accommodation and the more active you are during the program, the greater the outcome for your business will be.
