We are looking for the makers, creators and innovators of the future

Join us and apply for the upcoming THE MISSION batch!

Individual Talent

You are passionate about sustainablity, innovation and entrepreneurship? You want to create an impact with your daily work? We will connect you with the right people and the right partners to change the food, waste or construction industry.

Early-Stage Startups

Have you already been working on your startup-idea for some time? We will provide you with everything you need to reach your next big milestones and everything beyond.

THE MISSION offers a lot...

Innovate with industry leading corporates
Get 10.000 EUR equity free for your team
Regular coaching sessions by Bain & Company
Work with a team that will become family
Legal advice sessions by Osborne Clarke
Sustainable Innovation Workshops
Venture Capital Fundraising Masterclasses
Various mentionings in the Handelsblatt
THE MISSION is much more than just an accelerator.
During the three-month program, you will get in touch with market leaders from your industry (and maybe you will win them as your pilot-customers).

You will deepen the skills and knowledge you need to push your startup to the next level. And the best: All this will happen with your dream-team - whether you have already found it or whether you will find it with us.

It is not easy to found a successful sustainable startup, but we support you in every step of the way.

Application

Why should I apply for a THE MISSION program?
In our THE MISSION programs, you can expect a structured three-month program to further develop your startup. You will get intensive support from industry leaders and personal, as well as idea coachings. And the best part: For participating in THE MISSION your team even receives 10,000 €. So, if you are already a start-up founder or are planning to become one, THE MISSION is the right program for you.
Who can apply?
Anyone with an innovative idea can apply - from solo entrepreneurs to early-stage start-ups.
If you are applying with a startup you should consider the following criteria: Your idea should not be older than four years. Have you already founded a corporation? Then it should not be older than three years. In general the accelerator is open to all innovative startups with the capacity to develop a new solution or repurpose their existing solution.
How can I join THE MISSION?

Do I need an idea to apply?
You can apply with or without an idea. If you do not have an idea on your own or with your team, we will match you with other participants who are still looking for co-founders.
Does my startup need to be linked to the construction/waste/food industry?
No, it is basically possible that your solution, if it fits, could become an enhancement of the respective industry. However, a knowledge or previous experience with the respective industry is highly recommended.
