The central objective of the action area “Accelerate” is to support German startups in the market launch of their products and services, the acquisition of investors, identification of suitable suppliers and the establishment of R&D cooperation in China, Japan and Vietnam.



Selected startups will receive an on-site support through established branch offices (HUBs) operated together with the local partners on the target markets. Each chosen start-up in an accelerator class will receive a financial support to co-finance the costs for a 2-4-week stay in the HUB and working space on the target market.

As a result, startups should use the market exploration program to get to know local business environment, integrate into the entrepreneurial scene in the target market and to develop business contacts and partner network during the events, workshops and business meetings on site.
