    Why your startup should apply to the SpinLab

    We’re based in the thriving city of Leipzig, Germany which is about 190KM outside of Berlin. The city is an awesome place to live, work, and grow, and your startup will truly be taken to the next level if you’re accepted into one of our classes. We’ve got a page that will go into detail with 10 specific reasons about why you should apply to the SpinLab, but to summarize some of the key points that will be of interest to founders looking to apply, here’s what you can get excited about:

    • Nothing is taken from your startup. We’re unique in the sense that we take 0 equity, shares, or intellectual property from your startup. Your company stays as much yours when you finish our program, as it was before you ever started with us. Our main goal is to push you to success.
    • True Internalization. Our accelerator operates in both English and German, as long as your startup can communicate fluently in one of these languages we welcome you to apply! Furthermore, if you want to expand internationally, we have excellent partnerships with international companies and the HHL that can help you plan your internationalization right from the start.
    • The Spinnerei is awesome. We’re housed in a re-invigorated cultural and art industrial hub in Leipzig. The environment here will inspire you to be your best, day in, and day out.
