About German Accelerator
German Accelerator is an organization which takes high potential companies in the world's leading innovation centers at its locations on a fast-paced learning journey. Companies have to apply for those programs which are free of charge once you have been accepted and are highly customized to the individual needs of the participants, enabling them to enter international markets and achieve rapid success. The organization was founded in 2011 and is operated by German Entrepreneurship GmbH and supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
ADTANCE participates in the German Accelerator Program
ADTANCE applied for the German Accelerator program in the USA at the New York Location and has prevailed in 3 application rounds with sixteen other companies that were taken for the different locations in the US program. For ADTANCE also the location Silicon Valley would have been considered for participation in the Program. However, ADTANCE has consciously chosen the New York location because it allows the company to be closer to its customers and has direct access to the industry.
Other well-known companies that have already been supported by the German accelerator and successfully participated in the program are amongst others the German flagship Startup N26 and the billion-dollar valued software company Celonis.
With the German Accelerator Program ADTANCE now gets the chance to take guidance and individual coaching from experts and entrepreneurs during one on one sessions and workshops. Also ADTANCE will be introduced to a strong network of potential partners, customers and investors who are interested in ADTANCE products.
The Program will start this July. Typically, the program takes place on site in New York or Silicon Valley. Due to the current situation it will be carried out remotely – “which of course we at ADTANCE are sorry for” states Nils Arnold, CEO & Co-Founder of ADTANCE GmbH & Co. KG. He continues: “New York would have been an experience and of course it is always a greater pleasure to make personal contact with people. Anyway, we know it can only be great, we are really looking forward to it and are very excited.”
