The startup ecosystem for technology-driven startups from Potsdam, Brandenburg and the Berlin-area

MediaTech Hub Accelerator is the sparring partner for early-stage start-up teams whose ideas and solutions are based on media technologies such as virtual reality, immersive technologies, artificial intelligence, voice, cloud, blockchain, or general digital technologies. We are industry agnostic, and this suits us. We feel that working with a diverse range of industries is our strength—it contributes to a balanced ecosystem within our hub.

Together with our initiators or key partners, the University of Potsdam, the Hasso Plattner Institute, and the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF, MediaTech Hub Accelerator‘s goal is to offer young start-up teams an individually tailored program.

We offer a six-month program that enables newly founded teams the opportunity to further develop their business models, build quality networks, and acquire skills in pitching, marketing, and sales, as well as in the legal, tax, and venture development areas.

We provide excellent and tailored support to each start-up in our portfolio, regardless of which stage they are in.

We take technology-based business models and start-ups to the next entrepreneurial level and share our knowledge with the founder community and local stakeholders. We believe in the impact of our network, and it shows:

  • 430 digital companies from the metropolitan area
  • 12 nationwide locations for the Digital Hub Initiative
  • 3 universities in Potsdam with over 23,000 students

Do you think that your start-up belongs in our Potsdam hub? Then we look forward to hearing your idea and to receiving your pitch deck through our online application platform.
