5G consumer entertainment

5G entertainment program

5G is the new mobile communications standard. It makes brand new applications possible that require particularly fast networks with high capacity and short response times. 5G will change the way we communicate, how we interact with digital content and connect the physical and virtual world!

Application phase for the program has ended

Show, don’t tell

We are very excited to make this next-gen technology tangible: something we can quite literally put into the hands of Deutsche Telekom’s customers. Together with our partner Quake Capital* we’re on the hunt for world class entrepreneurs and startups that bring compelling 5G-enhanced applications to mobile devices.

This is your chance to bring 5G to the masses. Plus, in working together with hubraum, Deutsche Telekom and Quake you’ll have the best partners you could hope for to join you in the 5G revolution. We’re hosting the program right next to Deutsche Telekom’s HQ in the beautiful city of Bonn. This will give you the chance to spend time in the stunning Rhineland/Cologne region – without a doubt Germany’s capital in terms of heart and soul (plus ready yourself for a vibrant media and startup scene).

*Quake Capital is a seed stage venture capital fund and growth accelerator program. Their investments are only applicable to companies that come through the program and which are about more than just making money. Through the accelerator program, teams will receive world-class coaching, personalized mentorship targeted at each company’s specific needs, and access to Quake Capital’s extensive network of investors and strategic partners.

The 5G Consumer Entertainment Program is a joint collaboration between hubraum and Quake Capital.
