Kraftwerk – city accelerator bremen was created to develop powerful ideas for the city of the future. It enables us to assist startups, e.g. by initiating co-operations with the kraftwerk’s partner companies. We create synergy effects by establishing contact with other startups already active at kraftwerk, and with all kinds of other companies involved in the coworking space and Bremen community.

The issues addressed at kraftwerk are climate neutrality, circular economy and digitalization.

How much support, and what kind of support, will lead you to success? Depending on how developed your idea is, you can work with us to devise an action plan tailored to your specific needs.

With its innovation hotspots for wind energy, maritime technology, automotive and aerospace technology, transport and logistics, the Hanseatic city of Bremen is one of Germany’s most interesting economic hubs. The startup scene’s ecosystem is far-reaching, with a wide range of options for networking and exchanging knowledge. The city near the North Sea is lively and lush, situated right on the Weser River. It has short travelling distances, with the airport virtually right in the middle, and a great variety of sporting and cultural facilities. So it’s the ideal setting for being able to fully concentrate on business development – the spirit of research, apparent throughout the entire city, does the rest.
