Meet the NMA batch 9:

If you look for the definition of the word batch in the dictionary you will find something like “a group of things or people dealt with at the same time or considered similar in type”.

At next media accelerator, we run two batches a year, meaning that we assemble groups of startup founders who share one similarity: they are building up innovative, groundbreaking tech products to be implemented by the media industry.

For our batch #9 we are once again happy to welcome international teams (startups from six countries, founders from nine nationalities) that have a diverse range of technologies.

A hectic agenda awaits for the teams, with events, trips and mentorship sessions that will allow them to develop their products and partner up with leading media houses, publishers and agencies, in Germany and abroad.

Here are the eight startups joining our accelerator program for batch 9:
