With our unique and independent accelerator, we take your startup forward!

For Start-ups

Your startup has a great idea, service or product related to digital commerce or logistics in B2B or B2C? As the first independent accelerator with a vast network of leading corporations and experts in these sectors, STARBUZZ provides the growth support and contacts you need to scale up your business model and speed up the go-to-market process.

We do not offer an initial equity funding for a stake in your startup. All you need is a motivated team and an investment of three months time in our first accelerator phase!

For Companies

STARBUZZ is more than an accelerator program! We do not only support startups, we also create value added for our partnering companies!

In supporting entrepreneurs, you can connect to new exciting start-ups in your field, keep up with current industry trends, connect with other members of our network and you will be able to interact with cutting-edge concepts and refresh your own perspectives.

Besides the corporate and personal benefits, being a partnering company and mentor means actively having an impact on moving the digital economy and new startups forward. Supporting founders and their ideas is a means of giving something back.
