Let's scale your sound and acoustics startup

What we offer

By joining forces with some of the sound industry’s most reputable players like Bang & Olufsen and Harman, we aim to leverage the existing expertise of the Danish sound industry and scaling the future’s best sound and acoustics.

In collaboration with Sound Hub Denmark, we have created a unique and tailored accelerator program providing sound startups free access to state-of-the-art facilities, acoustics laboratories and makerspace for the development of their products. Our Sound Hub Accelerator offers sound startups an international six-months equity-free scaling platform, attracting startups from as far away as Australia and the United States.

Guiding our startups is a team of soundtech professionals with highly specialized skills, drawing on their knowledge and experiences from their backgrounds in the sound industry. Sound startups will receive business training from experienced consultants and get further access to a specialized network. Additionally, the Sound Hub Accelerator’s placement in the City of Sound (aka Struer) is very useful for sound startups, as they can leverage from the local area and its businesses. Being that many of Struer’s citizens are former B&O employees, they have a great understanding of what it takes working with sound. This is advantageous, for instance, when searching for a production house to cooperate with.

"As a startup company, IDUN audio has greatly benefited from being part of the Soundtech Accelerator with Accelerace. In general, the camps were very well organised. The presentations were always relevant, and the exercises challenged us to ask hard questions. But most importantly, the individual workshops helped us to solve some of the issues particular to our company. All in all, it was a pleasure to work with such a skilled team."

Pauli Minnaar

CEO and founder of IDUN Audio

“Accelerace made a huge difference to Trustpilot because they introduced me to people who had the exact experience we needed. Especially in the devising of our business model and the execution of it, it made a crucial difference to us. I’m not sure we would have existed today if it wasn’t for that introduction.”

Peter Mühlmann

Founder and CEO of Trustpilot

“Together with the Soundtech acceleration experts, we worked on our player’s acoustics, and we got amazing advice on how to lower down the production costs. We also kick-started the design for another device in just a few days by leveraging the experts pulled in specifically for us”

Theodore Marescaux

CEO and Founder MuuseLabs

"Accelerace organized an intense program that brought Instamic's business plan, sales and marketing strategy to the next level"
