Let's scale your sound and acoustics startup

What we believe

Technology has irreversibly changed publishing, distribution, sharing and playback of music. We believe that mobile is going to be the growth area for publishing as well as consumption. High-resolution and high-quality formats will continue to emerge along with 3D and spatial recording. Social platforms will continue to change the way music is promoted and consumed. AI and Digital Signal Processing will keep exploring the possibility of advanced production and playback experiences with music.

Accelerace leverages the existing expertise of the Danish sound and acoustics landscape by matchmaking the most promising international startups with reputable players such as Bang & Olufsen and Harman. In collaboration with Sound Hub Denmark, we have created a tailored accelerator program providing sound startups free access to state-of-the-art testing facilities and makerspace for developing their products. On top, the Sound Hub Accelerator offers you a six-months and equity-free scaling platform with business training from experienced consultants, guidance from mentors within the industry and further access to a specialized network.
