Helping Startups Is Our Passion
SpinLab – The HHL Accelerator supports entrepreneurial teams in growing and creating innovative businesses. Our mission is to foster entrepreneurship and innovation in the center of Germany and beyond by providing hands-on guidance to startups and spin-offs. Entrepreneurial teams remain independent – we won’t do your job for you – but we can help you to achieve incredible results through our tailored program.
To this end we provide (co-working) office space at SPINNEREI (Leipzig’s Cotton Mill), an internationally renowned venue for arts, culture and business. Our technology partners are able to provide key resources to help you make your ideas a reality. Highly-motivated coaches and mentors share their know-how and experience as part of our interactive program using team discussions, seminars, workshops and other formats.
