What You Will
Work On

Our Program
Structure

Step1

Pre-Program

Prior to joining the program in New York, we help you prepare for your business journey in the U.S. Our team will give you an overview of what you need to do before you board the plane.

Step2

Bootcamp & Workshop Weeks

The first two weeks of the program are dedicated to a workshop series, tailored to your needs. These workshops will equip you with the knowledge needed to enter the U.S. market and are hosted by mentors, alumni, and the German Accelerator team.

Step3

Quarterly Welcomefest & Happy Hour

Every quarter, we bring together mentors, alumni, and friends to introduce the new class. The event serves as an opportunity to establish how our community can best help each company over the upcoming months.

Step4

Board Meeting

After three months, you will report on your company progress, milestones reached, challenges faced, and opportunities identified at the Board Meeting. The local Sub-Steering Committee will assess your success and commitment to the program and decide on granting an extension.

Step5

German Startup Night

This is your time to shine! At the end of the initial quarter, each company pitches in front of an investor panel, 200 guests, and press representatives, while having the opportunity to engage first-hand with the thriving local startup environment.
