Accelerator – General Accelerator

Founders Accelerator

Empower Entrepreneurs.

The Founders Foundation trains the
next generation of successful B2B tech
entrepreneurs and builds a sustainable
startup ecosystem in the heart of
the German Mittelstand. It was founded
2016 by the Bertelsmann Stiftung
as a non-profit org. and doesnÔÇÖt take
equity from founders. The Accelerator
program is the spearhead of its modular-
based Education Model which
maps the entire startup lifecycle.

In the Accelerator program B2B tech
startup teams are supported in successfully
implementing their business
idea in the market. They profit from
serial entrepreneurs as their individual
mentors and enter into an extensive
network of alumni, Hidden Champions
and global market leaders from
the region. All these players come
together at the annual Hinterland of
Things tech conference.

problem-solution fit with their
scalable B2B tech business
idea. Ideally, the teams already
have their own developer
on board and are preferably
connected to the OWL region.
