:agile accelerator claims “Develop your idea with us. We bring a lot more than money.” as their slogan and you may take that literally!


:agile started in May 2013 with a strong background from the energy sector completing E.ON’s activities with regard to innovation while nurturing new business ideas.

For each :agile Accelerator phase the :agile team selects up to five ideas. That makes another reason to put all your energy into your project at Startup Weekend, since there is certainly an opportunity to apply for the :agile accelerator program afterwards.

This is :agile accelerator in a lean and brief nutshell:

Once applied and been chosen by their program you will have the opportunity to develop and validate your ideas in a co-working atmosphere in Düsseldorf or Berlin over a period of three months.

:agile accelerator will give specialist support including funding, coaching, engineering expertise, human resources and marketing & sales support to their chosen projects during this time. The first stage ends with a presentation of your project to potential investors from across the E.ON Group who to make an investment decision or include other external investors.

At SWHH15 you will certainly have the opportunity to get prove of concept for your idea and contact points to tie up to your future. So, do not hesitate to drop by!
