the tech

Here are the tech solutions proposed by Batch #1 startups.

Read more about them on a page about Accelerator participants.

Sustainable NFT marketplace for fine art and fashion.

Social curation platform for all types of creative content (video/ audio/ texts).

Online library and editor for interactive sheet music.

New musical instrument based on an easy-to-customize touchscreen.

AI-app which helps to improve mental health while discovering art.

Social marketplace for live events.

NFT marketplace for music and new models of royalty connected.

AI-based design tool for cultural heritage ornaments and patterns.

the who

We invite artists, producers, cultural entrepreneurs and organizations worldwide to collaborate with the Batch #1 startups.

Collaboration is free.

Apply for collaboration if you see how one of the technologies described may be beneficial to your own creative projects. 

All applicants should explain in the application form how startup technology can help their aspirations. 



By collaborating with a startup, partners join the CultTech ecosystem with other creatives, startups, investors and institutions.

Even if you apply and do not participate in this collaboration, you still become part of the community. The Accelerator team works with various CultTech companies and Accelerator Batch#2 is already planned, so we will be able to offer new opportunities in the future.

Organized collaboration for the future

The Accelerator team will undertake the management of the collaboration during the Accelerator program, but this may be only the beginning of long-term collaboration beyond it.

New market & publicity

The Accelerator is based in Vienna, Austria, and the participating startups come from France, Germany, Spain, Estonia and Sweden.

Innovative models of monetization

Startups’ tech can help find new ways to monetize creative projects.
