What we do

Before we start getting into details, let’s try to clarify what incubation actually means from hub:raum’s point of view. A good way to explain it: contrast incubation to a life support system. The latter keeps you alive but confined; the former wants to get you off the ground and going. At hub:raum we want to produce sustainable businesses by providing you with financing, mentoring, co-working space and a pragmatic access to corporate levers. When, after 9-12 months, you’re through hub:raum, your team is a robust, viable, and fundable company. hub:raum is not a place where you get a papertiger to assist you in the digital jungle. The support we provide is focused and makes sense. Our goal is to help you to validate your hypotheses as fast as possible. Failing and pivoting is also part of this process.

Who we are looking for

If you can check the following points, you should apply now:
  • Excellent team of 2 to 4 founding members
  • An outstanding, scalable idea
  • Passion, energy, and commitment to get it realized

If you cannot find yourself within one of these fields, but still think we should become your investor, please feel free to contact us anyway.

What you get


We support you with a seed-funding from 100,000 € to 300,000 € to get started.


We offer you a place to work and the opportunity to exchange with your peers and our expert team.


We bring you together with hands-on mentors and experts that support you with entrepreneurial experience and specialized know-how.


We enable you to pragmatically exploit corporate levers.

The Deal: we offer you all this and take typically between 10 to 15% equity in exchange.


The Terms

hub:raum offers a comprehensive seed financing package for the first 6 to 12 months. We will hold a minority stake in your company via T-Venture - no strings attached - and you are the boss! When your business is growing we can offer a seamless access to further financing in cooperation with T-Venture. Yet, this isn’t a binding way to go for your team.
