Imagine an accelerator completely dedicated to startups operating in the audio sector, equipped with a co-working space, classrooms, and, above all, “doing oriented”, where to put products to the test and evaluate their mechanical resistance and not only: even the resistance to atmospheric agents. It can’t be possible? You’re wrong.
Accelerace did it, in Denmark, in Struer to be precise, known as “the city of sound”. It’s a concept totally dedicated to young companies in the audio sector, born upon the belief that specialization and synergies coming from gathering a number of players in the same space can really make the difference in the development of more and more performing and cutting-edge products. Northern countries, after all, boast a long tradition in high-fidelity.
In 2018, Sound Hub Denmark raised over 50 millions danish crowns and got ready to become the biggest European sound tech cluster and one of the few in the world.
“Startup cannot only be capital-based to reach their goals” says Thomas Wiborg Steen, Business Accelerator and Investment Manager at Accelerace. “They also need a set of resources and tools to test the products, especially in case they are physical. With Sound Hub Denmark we are concentrating all of these things in just one place”.
