Berlin Startup Academy (BSA) is Berlin’s boutique, independent Startup Accelerator. In a 3-month, 2 day/week program involving 60+ of Berlin’s most experienced CEOs and investors, BSA helps to turn an idea into a startup or to bring entrepreneurial drive to your enterprise. As part of German Technology Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC), we make the resources of Germany’s industry and Mittelstand, wealth, science, and academics available to founders from around the world.

Unlike other accelerators, BSA accepts founders who may or may not have a complete team or prototype yet, helping you with team completion, idea evaluation, and access to the Berlin ecosystem.

Our independence from corporate funds means that we can accept ideas from across the board, including hardware or unusual ones like starting your own investor.

Being part-time, we don’t require you to drop everything you’re doing and completely submit to a new schedule. Freelancing on the side is cool with us – up to a point, though.

However, we are very critical regading the feasibility of your startup idea, because we believe that no mentor or investor can salvage an idea without pain point or target group.
