Axel Springer has teamed up with Porsche to build a new accelerator for digital business models in Berlin. Both companies signed a joint venture contract on November 16th. It is planned to add more heavyweight partners from other industries in the near future. As of the beginning of 2018, Axel Springer Plug and Play will focus all its energy on the development of the existing portfolio. All initial investments into new companies will be made out of the new company.
We have partnered with Deutsche Vermögensberatung AG, a leading financial consultancy in the DACH region. We believe, that together with our new partner, we will be able to provide better opportunities not only for FinTech and InsurTech startups but for companies operating in a broad range of industries.
Together with EIGEN + ART Lab we would like to offer an artist the opportunity to become artist‐in‐residence for the forthcoming program of startups in our accelerator. We would like to invite the artist to join us from 15th of May 2017 until 9th of August 2017 in Berlin.
Since all times lots of money and resources have been spend into the German health system. The consequence: it ranks amongst the best in the world – medical care, clinincs and insurance coverage are on a good level. Why stop here? What has to be done to change a good level into an excellent level? How can we facilitate contacting a doctor, reduce waiting times for an appointment and timely discover diseases? Digitization offers a huge chance to use the existing potential for the good of the patients, so Let’s Talk Digital Health!
Our shareholder Axel Springer, Europe’s leading digital publisher, has launched THE VENUE BERLIN. It’s a place for musicians, producers, journalists, students and entrepreneurs, located in Berlin-Kreuzberg. It will be the unfair advantage for any startup in our accelerator program which works on a music-related topic.
