The selected teams work together on their value proposition, on the business model and on accelerating market entry - together with trainers and mentors. At the end of the program is the Demo Day: Pitching in front of potential investors and the regional founder community.
Accelerator program upCAT
In the Accelerator, the teams learn relevant methods, tools and skills for building your business model and implement them directly in your business idea. The upCAT follows a very simple structure: short theoretical input on the methods, practical application to your own start-up project, feedback loops with trainers and the other participating teams.
We are a team of experienced consultants and trainers, which dedicates itself with bundled know-how to the requirements of the company founders. We use the latest methods and techniques to support start-ups in accelerating their market entry. We also offer participants access to mentors, industry contacts and a strong local start-up community.
Teams of scientists and researchers from the KIT environment with a focus on deep technology.
