In September, we applied for newly created funding program called Media Founders Program, which was jointly launched by Medieninnovationszentrum Babelsberg (MIZ) and MediaTech Hub Accelerator. It consists of two phases in total.
Last week, as part of the Media Founders Program, we presented Snaque to an eight-member jury consisting of experts from academia and business development. The goal was to be accepted into the second phase of the program. Now about a week later came the happy news: It worked! We become part of the MediaTech Hub Accelerator! Wohooo!
The initiators of the Accelerator include the University of Potsdam, the Hasso Plattner Institute and the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. The Accelerator Program is supported by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor and Energy of the State of Brandenburg, the Investment Bank of the State of Brandenburg, the State Capital Potsdam and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection as part of the de:hub funding program.
Snaque is now part of the Accelerator from July until the end of the year. The dedicated team around Erdinç Koc, Head of MTH Accelerator Babelsberg and Susanne Zöchling, Project Manager MTH Accelerator Babelsberg will be there to support us with advice and support during this time.
We are looking forward to the program and the exchange with all the other participating startups!
