the 3D printing accelerator powered by

3D Printing is a rapidly growing field of technology. Almost every day new business ideas are generated in the realm of added manufacturing. Therefore, the Strascheg Center of Entrepreneurship (SCE) in collaboration with AMV (EOS) supports this business segment with its 3D printing accelerator FREIRAUM. The Accelerator can rely on a first-class team of business coaches, a large startup network, an own 800 m2 incubator and market access support by partner companies.

Our accelerator addresses early stage 3D printing startups and accompanies them on their way to the market and to their Seed A financing. During the last decade, the Strascheg Center of Entrepreneurship (SCE) supported more than 250 startups which today have accumulated a market capitalization of up to several 100m Euro. Every year, about 20 startups leave our incubator, which is located in downtown Munich, Germany.

We offer early phase startups business coaching and / or consultancy, office space, network access, market access and direct support to attract business angels and / or investors.

Every two weeks you will be coached in a 1:1 session by your personal consultant who accompanies you throughout your whole acceleration process.

AM Ventures (EOS) supports your market entry in the field of 3D printing. Don’t miss this opportunity!

Since we are a non-profit organization we do not take any equity from you and do not charge you for our services. However, if your startup is successful we motivate you to support the future work of the SCE.

The Acceleration Process

You fill in the application form.

We confidentially discuss your business idea with you within the next 48h.

You will present your business pitch in front of a small jury from SCE and EOS. We offer individual appointments.

We integrate you into our startup league. Simultaneous support/funding by other organizations is not prohibitive.


Who decides about the access of a startup to the 3D printing accelerator FREIRAUM?

The integration of a startup in our accelerator will be decided by SCE and/or AM Ventures (EOS).

How long does the accelerator program support early phase startups?

We support startups for 6 months. However, if necessary, we prolong this period up to 12 months.

What can startups expect from the 3D printing accelerator FREIRAUM?

You will be coached and integrated in our startup league. If necessary, you will be integrated in our 800 m2 incubator in Munich where we support you with office space and free access to technical labs and maker spaces. Moreover, you can profit from our large startup network and market contacts in the field of 3D printing/added manufacturing.

Can we apply for the accelerator if we are not located in Munich?

The SCE accelerator also supports you on a virtual base. However, we see it as an advantage if at least one team member is located in Munich. But this is not a prerequisite.

Can I apply for the 3D printing accelerator FREIRAUM if I do not have a team of co-founders around me?

Our accelerator also supports individual founders and helps them to find suited co-founders/partners.
