Incubation, Co-Creation,

Get ready for six intense months of startup life! We will provide you with coaching, connect you with corporate decision makers, give you access to data and will also help you to grow your network. Our incubation program is tailored to your needs and specifically developed for data-driven startups.

At the end of the incubation program we will present your achievements in a special DataDay to the world. 



Gain Startup Skills

Each month will start with an intense bootcamp covering topics such as teams building and leadership, ethics and regulations, legal and taxation, communications and pitching as well as business modelling and product design. In addition you can schedule individual sessions with selected coaches via our special mentoring platform powered by the team of Hallo Sophia. Our Program Manager will help you to develop the optimal coaching strategy for your needs. 


Work on real-life problems

In case you have not found the perfect problem-solution-fit, we will support you in exploring and validating your problem. This could happen in close collaboration with one of our corporate partners or by providing access to special coaches. Co-creating ideas with our partners will give you valuable insights into their markets and daily challenges but also into datasets available. Our partner network is growing constantly.
