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 Soundtech Accelerator’s placement in the City of Sound (aka Struer) is very useful for sound startups, as they can immerse themselves in the local area and its businesses. Many of Struer’s citizens are former B&O employees so have a great understanding of what it takes to excel within the sound space. This is advantageous, for instance, when searching for a production house, parts supplier, or electrical engineer to cooperate with.

“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."

"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."
