The Startup-Accelerator is an industry-specific seed accelerator that supports tech-startups within the fields of health and medicine, chemistry, and bioeconomy as well as energy and recycling. The program takes place two times a year and divides the startups into so-called batches. Each batch runs four months including mentorship, educational elements as well as networking opportunities resulting in an investor pitch event at the end.
One accelerator, two programs
The Weinberg Campus Accelerator consists of two independent modules: Startup-Accelerator and Growth-Accelerator. The Startup-Accelerator is designed for startups in the preseed and seed-phase. During a four-month intensive program containing workshops and coaching fundamental knowledge and soft-skills are imparted and a valuable access to networks is ensured.
During the Growth-Accelerator startups within the growthphase expect individual coachings, mentorings, and workshops to overcome challenges and to receive guidance to make progress.
