Pots­dam uni­que­ly com­bi­nes ambi­ti­ons in the field of media tech­no­lo­gy and start-ups, com­pa­nies, uni­ver­si­ties and 
rese­arch institutions. 

Media­Tech – Use and 
Expe­ri­ence your Digi­tal Data 

Be it through sound, speech, image or moving image - media tech­no­lo­gies such as vir­tu­al and mixed rea­li­ty, ani­ma­ti­on, strea­ming, volu­metry, voice assis­tance and image reco­gni­ti­on play the main role for us - regard­less of ver­ti­cal or industry.

The Hub - the place of innovation 
for media technologies 

The Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam is the umbrel­la under which we bund­le our com­mu­ni­ty, pro­jects and acti­vi­ties. They are all inter­con­nec­ted and interlo­cked - be it in our start­up pro­gram­mes like the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor or the MTH Space as well as our annu­al con­fe­rence. With all our pro­jects, we pur­sue our goal of fur­ther advan­cing the media tech eco­sys­tem and sha­ping a more effi­ci­ent, inclu­si­ve and crea­ti­ve future.


The Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam is the only digi­tal hub in Ger­ma­ny with a focus on media tech­no­lo­gy. It makes media tech­no­lo­gy inno­va­tions from Pots­dam visi­ble, streng­thens entre­pre­neur­ship and con­nects actors from the net­work and bey­ond (CON­NECT!).


Deve­lo­ping media-tech ide­as and busi­ness models (DEVE­LOP!) is what the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor encou­ra­ges young foun­ders to do. It is the spar­ring part­ner for start-up teams in the ear­ly pha­se. The pro­gram­me was initia­ted by the Has­so Platt­ner Insti­tu­te, the Film Uni­ver­si­ty Babels­berg KON­RAD WOLF and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Potsdam.


In the heart of Babels­berg, the media city, we have crea­ted a space for media tech start-up teams. In the MTH Space, ide­as and inno­va­tions are actual­ly rea­li­sed (DO!).


Media tech­no­lo­gies pave the way for every busi­ness. At the MTH Con­fe­rence, we bring tog­e­ther new ide­as and busi­ness models, inter­na­tio­nal per­spec­ti­ves and ground­brea­king appli­ca­ti­ons to think ahead tog­e­ther (THINK!).
