The Accelerator Format by TECHHOUSE
Holistic Innovation-Boost & access to the Austrian Market
We sharpen your business models with you in the direction of digitalization and ecosystem integration. We support you in market entry and scale-up and give you tools for online marketing, sales and recruiting on your startup journey.
Innovation & Start-ups
Startups accelerate the economy and drive innovation in the market. With the ELEVATOR program, we at TECHHOUSE want to make a contribution to this and actively support startups in entering the market. The networking of start-ups and corporates represents a particular added value.
For two years, we supported Raiffeisen-Landesbank Steiermark on its innovation journey with our Accelerator format in our TECHHOUSE location in Graz. Start-ups from a wide range of sectors were brought together and were able to benefit from our programme and our network of experts and corporates.
„The TECHHOUSE Accelerator was a great opportunity to get to know the Austrian innovation ecosystem and Graz in particular. We were introduced to several potential customers and it marks our beginning of a long and successful expansion to Austria.“
Dr. Tina Ruseva
„During our participation in the TECHHOUSE Accelerator program we gained valuable experience, met interesting partners and investors and got a taste of the Styrian start-up ecosystem. And I have to admit – we loved it!“
We support start-ups that already have more than just an idea and want to shape their business model and take the next step towards market entry.
Combination of customized coaching & group sessions
The program consists of a balanced mix of group sessions and individual mentoring sessions with our network of experts.
Access to growth capital, investors and industry partner
Together with our partner network of industry partners and investors, we maximize the success of the participating startups and help them to achieve important industry or POC partnerships and make them visible to investors.

The TECHHOUSE ELEVATOR takes place at our TECHHOUSE location in Graz. We cover the costs and facilitate the participation of the startups on site. In this way, we strengthen not only networking with corporates, but also integration into our regional ecosystem.
Zugang zum österreichischen Markt und Erhöhung der Sichtbarkeit

The TECHHOUSE ELEVATOR is divided into a Core Development (3 months) and a Residency Phase (2 months) and covers a total duration of 5 months. The Core Development Phase is the core of the program and consists of workshop formats and individual coaching. In the Residency Phase, we aim for a fade-out of the intensive consulting phase. Startups benefit in the long term from participation in the Accelerator through our alumni and company network.
