Value NCA program

Our 6-month NCA Booster program has usually a value between €50,000-75,000. The amount will not be deducted from our cash investment, as it is converted directly into the NCA accelerator fee by us. It simply reflects the value of the program added on top of the original investment.


Corporate Grafik


From achieving product-market fit to sales and tech decisions, we know the struggles for startups and have ideas on how to solve them. Together with our network of mentors, we will guide you on your entrepreneurial journey during the acceleration phase and beyond.

Tailored Workshops

At NCA, we believe there are no one-size-fits and no reason to repeat the same things over and over again constantly. At the beginning of each batch, we thoroughly identify needs and potentials to adjust our program accordingly.

First Customers

Our industry investors and partners are ready to test-drive your product or service, give crucial feedback, and provide first revenues. Furthermore, we support you in customer acquisition within our extended network.


Startups at NCA are not only provided with expertise, support, and know-how but also with cash. Therefore, we have different funding options, and it’s up to the respective startup to choose.

Alumni Network

Although the biannual program ends after 6 months, our portfolio startups remain for longer. As a result, they automatically become part of our alumni network with the possibility to use our support, network, and access to our industry investors, also far beyond the acceleration phase.

Follow-on investment

The majority of the teams we have invested in are looking to raise the next round of funding subsequently to our acceleration program. So during the six months, we will guide you on managing a follow-on fundraising round successfully.



A warm welcome to the new batch at NCA. During our fun and intense kick-off, we get to know each other a little better: In the first peer sessions, individual workshops, and one-on-ones with all of our team members.

Product Field Workshop

The product field workshop means to deep work on your product. We uncover possible strengths, opportunities, weaknesses and threats to design the most important steps within acceleration – friendly supported by the precious market insights of our corporate partners.

Speed dating

A few weeks into our program, we introduce all of our current startups to all our 20+ corporate investors and partners in a speed dating format. Be prepared to elevator pitch to everyone and find individual hooks to work with each other in exclusive C-level meetings.

Monthly Milestones

We help you to navigate through obstacles, boosts, and big waves. With our monthly milestones, our management team makes sure you are navigating in the right direction even and especially lean and agile towards proper VC-readiness.

Demo Day

After six months of boosting there is some time to celebrate you, your achievements, and of course your next steps. At this very moment, you’ll be celebrating with our entire network: corporates, alumni, investors, mentors, interested customers,… Cheers!
