It’s Time to Innovate

Get Expert Support from First Idea to Internationalization
With the first open accelerator designed exclusively for corporate startups


… employees in your company have an idea – for a new product, a new service, or a new business model.

The idea is promising and you want to support the team, but you’re also faced with a number of questions:

  • How can this business idea be evaluated in a short period of time?
  • What is the right methodology to test the idea?
  • How can you ensure the team is working towards its goals?

A corporate startup consists of a team within an already existing company. This team develops and tests a new product or service, or in some cases, even a completely new business model.   

A corporate startup uses the possibilities of a company, such as financing, existing data, etc., but initially works with its own structures and processes. It combines many years of experience of the established player with the agility of a startup.  

Introducing the Corporate Startup Accelerator!

The Corporate Startup Accelerator is the first open accelerator specifically for corporate startups.  

With this program, we help teams within a company sa.k.a. corporate startups to realize their ideas. We support them from the initial idea through market maturity to international scaling. Regardless of your industry or company size, from global corporations to medium-sized businesses, the program is individualized and exactly fit to you and your team. And all this keeps the startup completely independent of your internal resources and structures. 

The Corporate Startup Accelerator is based on our experience of more than 15 years of supporting over 200 corporate startups. In large corporations and small- to medium-sized companies from all industries.
