In June 2023, social entrepreneurial organisation 105 VIERTEL Hamburg took over key components of the Impact Hub Hamburg to ensure its continued existence and to launch new programmes. The first joint project is now the 105 VIERTEL Impact Accelerator, for which startups can apply until 11 September.
In demand are startups that have already been founded and want to solve an individual and concrete problem in the fields of circularity and sustainability. Another criterion is availability for the entire campaign period. The 105 FOURTH Impact Accelerator aims to help startups develop the necessary level of professionalism to achieve optimal impact and growth. They receive support from two mentors each, who offer them individual coaching once a week. Participating startups will receive additional know-how and valuable contacts through a strong Hamburg network.
You can apply until 11 September 2023. On 12 September, you will find out whether you have qualified for the next round. On 18 September, a matchmaking will take place, during which startups will be connected with suitable mentors. Among others, Tarek Müller (founder of ABOUT YOU) and Jakob Berndt (founder of Lemonaid and Tomorrow) will take part. The programme lasts eleven weeks and ends in January 2023 with a final pitch at which there are valuable prizes to be won. Afterwards, the 105 VIERTEL Impact Accelerator will continue to act as a strategic partner if needed. The programme is supported by the EU and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection, it is free of charge and shares do not have to be handed in.
