BUILDING THE FUTURE

Arrow

TECHHOUSE ACCELERATOR is a 15-week accelerator program based in Graz, Austria. During the program, startups and tech teams collaborate with industry partners on solving tech challenges and connect with venture capitalists and investors.

TECHHOUSE ACCELERATOR

The TECHHOUSE ACCELERATOR has one goal: To help you to take your organization to the next level – be it through sharpening your business model and technology, by validating your approach through solving a challenge with our industry partners, or by showcasing your abilities in front of investors and securing a new round of growth capital.  

To do so, we have created a program with two different acceleration tracks: One track that focuses on general acceleration topics and another that allows you to solve challenges together with industry clients. 

The first track is the so called “Acceleration Topic Track”, which focuses on early-stage tech startups and non-founded tech teams, that develop interesting and innovative business models and technologies in the following acceleration areas: Service based Technology Applications (e.g. AI, Blockchain), Sustainability, FinTech, Data Driven Business Models (e.g. data security or data empowerment, HealthTech as well as Industry 4.0. 

 

The second track is our “Proof of Concept Track”, where we work with startups, tech teams, and students, that will solve a specific tech challenge of one of our PoC-Partners from various backgrounds and industries. Teams can be both, incorporated startups, and non-founded tech teams, that have the goal to build a company. 

Our PoC-Partners are global industry players: 

  • next-incubator 
  • Amiblu 
  • Nutrichem – a B. Braun Company 
  • Hutchison Drei
  • Christof Global Impact

 Now it is on you to choose your track!

SUCCESS STORIES

Felloz // First VC investment

When we decided to support the local ecosystem by welcoming selected teams into our program, we did not know what to expect. 4 months later we are blown away by the dedication and development that the team behind Felloz has made over the course of the program.

The logical result: Their first financing by Fil Rouge Capital for their creative approach to disrupt the way society donates!

Congratulations and keep on rocking! #hardworkpaysoff
