pro­mi­seQ par­ti­ci­pa­tes in the “Start-up Sca­le program”

The “Start-up Sca­le pro­gram” of the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve ente­red the fourth round on March 30, 2023. The goal of the pro­gram is to sup­port high-poten­ti­al start­ups from the net­work of the initia­ti­ve. Within three months, the par­ti­ci­pa­ting start­ups recei­ve sup­port tail­o­red to their indi­vi­du­al needs. The pro­gram includes various coa­ching ses­si­ons and work­shops with coa­ches from the Hub Agen­cy and exter­nal experts, as well as pitch trai­ning to help them pre­sent them­sel­ves even bet­ter to poten­ti­al inves­tors, and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­ti­ci­pa­te in events and do some net­wor­king. In addi­ti­on, the pro­gram ends with a poli­ti­cal round­ta­ble. At the round­ta­ble, the par­ti­ci­pa­ting start­ups can exch­an­ge ide­as with poli­ti­cal repre­sen­ta­ti­ves and start a dialogue.

The Start-up Sca­le pro­gram recent­ly focu­sed on fema­le entre­pre­neur­ship and thus the pro­mo­ti­on of fema­le foun­ders. Now, the main focus is on migrant foun­ders. Ten start­ups have now been accept­ed into the pro­gram - eight teams come direct­ly from the net­work of the Digi­tal Hub Initia­ti­ve, and two teams were able to par­ti­ci­pa­te with a wildcard.

One of the­se ten teams is pro­mi­seQ. The Ber­lin-based start­up, which was alre­a­dy accept­ed into the pro­gram of the Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor in Octo­ber 2021, has set its­elf the task to redu­ce the num­ber of fal­se alarms. To achie­ve this goal, the two foun­ders Tol­ga Ermis and Eli­as Kar­del rely on the use of arti­fi­ci­al intel­li­gence in com­bi­na­ti­on with crowd­work. Par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on in the Start-up Sca­le pro­gram now marks the next step for the team in advan­cing their own busi­ness, and to fur­ther con­nect within the ecosystem.
