What our alum­ni say 

Andre­as Mich­al­ski, CI HUB (Foun­der & CEO) 

“For CI HUB GmbH, the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor was a real moment of hap­pi­ness. When we star­ted with CI HUB, MTH not only pro­vi­ded us with a gre­at space, but also accom­pa­nied us through the steps from idea to invest­ment.
The pro­gram hel­ped us a lot in spar­ring with expe­ri­en­ced foun­ders and spar­ring part­ners to ali­gn our­sel­ves pro­per­ly, learn to pitch, build a deck, and most important­ly… to meet the right peo­p­le.
If I were to start up again, I would try again to get a place at the MTH. And the peo­p­le are gre­at. A real­ly spe­cial thanks goes out to Erdinç for everything.”

Ben­ja­min Heese, Sen­sit! GmbH (CEO & Co-Founder) 

“As one of the first MTH start­ups, I am super proud to have been able to actively expe­ri­ence the deve­lo­p­ment of the MTH. When we foun­ded 5 years ago, the MTH was the cont­act point that pre­pared us for the VC world in a rea­li­stic way. We were able to learn to think big­ger and, as a neu­tral cont­act, they put their fin­ger firm­ly in the wound when it came to coa­ching. This was the basis for our con­tin­ued suc­cess, also in fundraising.”

Jero­me Lan­ge, kopp­la (Foun­der & CEO) 

“The MTH Acce­le­ra­tor was a real game chan­ger for us. It not only pre­pared us rea­li­sti­cal­ly for the chal­lenges of the first finan­cing round, but also signi­fi­cant­ly impro­ved our skills in crea­ting the first deck and approa­ching inves­tors cor­rect­ly. The lar­ge net­work of VCs and busi­ness angels was a huge help and the per­so­nal coa­ching during the ongo­ing finan­cing round gave us the right hands-on skills to con­vin­ce with self-con­fi­dence and clarity.”

Mar­kus Cremer, Song­Push (Co-CEO)

“The MTH Acce­le­ra­tor hel­ped us ide­al­ly in the ear­liest pha­se of our start­up with a net­work & cont­acts, on the one hand with intros to VC’s & Angels, but also to our VC law firm, with whom we still enjoy working today!”

FAQ 

What are the pro­gram costs?

 

The pro­gram is equi­­ty-free. We take a suc­cess fee for suc­cessful fund­rai­sing. The amount of the Suc­cess Fee is 3% of the total invest­ment sum with a cap of € 10k.

The suc­cess fee is char­ged only if an equi­ty invest­ment is clo­sed within 12 months from the pro­gram start, except if inves­tor commitments/​​term sheets alre­a­dy exist when the pro­gram starts.

What are the main topics of the program?

 

  • Fund­rai­sing preparation
  • Busi­ness mode­ling and finan­cial planning
  • Cal­cu­la­ting the start­up valua­ti­on and how much to raise
  • Buil­ding a fund­rai­sing fun­nel and choo­sing the right investors
  • Approa­ching and con­nec­ting with investors

What is the time commitment?

 

We expect total com­mit­ment from our par­ti­ci­pa­ting start­ups. Over a dura­ti­on time of 8 weeks, the pro­gram will hold up to three weekly online ses­si­ons with indus­try experts, inves­tors, and VC lawy­ers via Zoom on Fri­days bet­ween 1-5 pm. Fur­ther­mo­re, par­ti­ci­pan­ts will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sche­du­le one-on-one mee­tings with the Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor team for extra sup­port and per­so­na­li­zed feedback.

After the 8 weeks, we pro­vi­de our resour­ces to the start­ups for ano­ther 10 months.
