SRH Ber­lin: New Part­ner Uni­ver­si­ty in the MTH Accelerator

SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces has been a part­ner uni­ver­si­ty in the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor sin­ce March and is thus also part of the cos­mos in the Media­Tech Hub Potsdam.

The Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor was initia­ted in 2019 by the Uni­ver­si­ty of Pots­dam, the Has­so Platt­ner Insti­tu­te and the Film Uni­ver­si­ty Babels­berg KON­RAD WOLF. With the SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces, a pri­va­te uni­ver­si­ty from Ber­lin now com­ple­ments the net­work. Other con­tent and finan­cial part­ners of the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor are APX - Axel Sprin­ger and Por­sche, the ILB - Invest­ment Bank of the Sta­te of Bran­den­burg, the Minis­try of Eco­no­mic Affairs, Labour and Ener­gy of the Sta­te of Bran­den­burg and media:net.berlinbrandenburg e.V..

The SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces fits ide­al­ly into the envi­ron­ment of the Media­Tech Hub Pots­dam and of cour­se the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor - bet­ween crea­ti­ve and digi­tal indus­tries, tech and entre­pre­neur­ship. The inter­na­tio­nal­ly ori­en­ted degree pro­gram­mes ran­ge from Design, Coding and Engi­nee­ring, Entre­pre­neur­ship, Busi­ness Admi­nis­tra­ti­on to Film & Tele­vi­si­on and Marketing.

Espe­ci­al­ly in the area of entre­pre­neur­ship, the SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces has its own SRH Start-up Lab Ber­lin, a place whe­re stu­dents recei­ve sup­port in the are­as of idea and pro­duct deve­lo­p­ment and ide­a­ti­on, or take the first steps towards foun­ding a com­pa­ny.  In order to pro­vi­de the start-ups with fur­ther opti­ons in the are­as of ven­ture deve­lo­p­ment, fund­rai­sing, pit­ching, sales and legal mat­ters, among others, the SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces has joi­n­ed the Media­Tech Hub Acce­le­ra­tor and its network.

“It is with gre­at plea­su­re that we wel­co­me the SRH Ber­lin Uni­ver­si­ty of Appli­ed Sci­en­ces as a new part­ner uni­ver­si­ty in the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor, which per­fect­ly com­ple­ments the ori­en­ta­ti­on and idea of our initia­tors. And of cour­se we are exci­ted to wel­co­me crea­ti­ve and tech-sav­vy teams that we will sup­port with our indi­vi­du­al­ly tail­o­red pro­gram­me on their way in the start-up world,” says Erdinç Koç, Head of MTH Acce­le­ra­tor Babelsberg.

Sig­rid Peu­ker, Head of SRH Start-up Lab Ber­lin adds: “We’re thril­led to be part of the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor and to pro­vi­de our stu­dents and alum­ni an advan­ced pro­gram­me along with an exten­si­ve net­work of pro­fes­sio­nals in the Ber­lin-Bran­den­burg regi­on. The com­bi­na­ti­on of the arts and crea­ti­ve indus­tries, IT, tech­no­lo­gy and busi­ness sci­en­ces that the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor pres­ents is an ide­al fit for start-ups emer­ging from SRH Berlin.”


The MTH Acce­le­ra­tor is espe­ci­al­ly geared towards the needs of young foun­ders, pri­ma­ri­ly from uni­ver­si­ties. It com­ple­ments the start-up acti­vi­ties of the uni­ver­si­ties and offers smart and cus­to­mi­sed sup­port in the cru­cial ear­ly pha­se of the young com­pa­nies through men­to­ring, coa­ching, work­shops and the MTH Accelerator’s own know­ledge database.
