SAVE THE DATE: 9 January to 8 February

You want to start, and you want it now? Then our accelerator programme is exactly right for you. With our six to eight-week full-time programme, you will boost your start-up the way you need to.

The main task of the FS Accelerator is to transform a year of work into a matter of weeks. It is an 8-week, equity-free intensive programme for the FS community to launch their new ventures. The programme runs twice a year and culminates in a Demo Day for investors at the end of the final week. The programme is divided into three phases. 

One co-founder must be a Frankfurt School student or alumni to be eligible for this program. We reserve the right to refuse any application. A Co-founder is someone who has been there from the inception of the startup or owns at least 10% equity. Only FS Students and Alumni are eligible to pitch on our demo days

Phase one

Phase two
