Deadline: September 24, 2023.

Do you have an idea and want to turn it into reality, investing all of your energy into the development and implementation of your vision?

At Grace, you’ll receive an impactful entrepreneurship program along with a scholarship for 6 months to fully concentrate on your venture.

They have already supported over 100 women with a passion for entrepreneurship and innovation. Now, a community of like-minded peers and experts awaits you. Your ideas and personal development are the focal points of our program.

The program is open to all industries and various startup initiatives (including non-profit ventures). Thanks to our strong Grace community, they can connect you with suitable professionals and help your ideas take flight.


  1. The program is aimed at aspiring founders and teams who can participate full-time in the program.
  2. You can apply both individually and as a team. Mixed-Gender teams are also welcome to apply.
  3. You live in Berlin or are willing to relocate to Berlin to establish your company here.
  4. All business models can be supported. Applications from non-profit organizations are very welcome.
  5. If you have already founded a company, it’s not a problem as long as no economic activity has taken place yet.
  6. You must not have received any start-up bonus or EXIST scholarship before.


  1. Startup Know-How: Experienced experts will accompany you on your entrepreneurial journey. You will learn everything about the relevant topics of starting a business, from user testing, marketing, and sales to legal and financing, and much more. Experts from their network will address your individual challenges, enabling you to put what you’ve learned into practice.
  2. With the Grace Berlin Accelerator, the participating founders receive funding in the form of a monthly stipend. The stipend amounts to €2,200 gross and is paid at the end of each month. The program is full-time and includes workshops, coaching, mentoring, and much more (see above). You will allocate the remaining time to implement your startup project.
  3. Coaching: Your development as a founder and your business take center stage. Our experienced coaches will support you in unlocking your potential. Together, they will work on defining your goals and creating an individual roadmap for your idea.
  4. Peer Group: You will begin the program alongside 15 fellow founders, embarking on this journey full steam ahead. This peer group provides a space for exchange and co-creation, fostering mutual learning and growth. Peer-group learning is a vital factor in the program and extends beyond its duration.
  5. Mentoring: A network of over 150 mentors share their knowledge and experience with you. They bring in new perspectives, ask the right questions, and offer you assistance through their networks. Your individual challenges and entrepreneurial inquiries will be matched with suitable mentors who can provide guidance and support.
  6. Visibility: At Grace, participants take the spotlight. They create visibility for the next generation of founders. This includes their Demo Day, where you will present your idea before a selected audience of investors and key players from the startup scene, providing an opportunity to showcase your vision and gain exposure.
  7. Empowerment: Their team has already supported over 100 founders. They are familiar with the ups and downs of entrepreneurship and will be by your side throughout the journey. Together with you and your peers, they create a safe and brave space where diversity is embraced, and innovations can flourish
