A quick path to success

A² Programme for young companies

A quick path to success

Are you a young company bent on rapid growth?

Our A² programme provides you with a unique opportunity to do so. Pilot projects with established companies will help you push your business idea forward. Our A² programmes focus on specific industries. They last five months. Every programme works together with three to six so-called industrial partners.


There are currently no open challenges for the A² programme. However, you are welcome to send us a speculative application. We will then add your company to our database and inform you about current challenges from new industry partners.
