Step 4

Please be patient

After sending the application, you will receive a confirmation email and more details about the next steps. We might get in touch with you in case we need any further information. 

We will collect all applications and look at them carefully. This of course takes some time, so we really appreciate your patience.

Step 5

Convince us: Pitch at our selection day at the 29th of April!

We will invite pre-selected founder teams by the 23rd of April, that have caught our attention the most, to our great selection day at the 29th of April. Here you will have the chance to pitch your idea and convince us! Why should your project be part of the REAKTOR.BERLIN program?

The pitches will be followed by a speed dating session with mentors from our ecosystem. The winner teams will be announced on the same day!
