Sound Hub Denmark and Accelerace have just launched round two of the SoundTech Accelerator Program. This time with 50 applicants – versus 30 last time. Eleven talented startups from all over the world have been selected to join the 6-month tailormade program.
“We have an extremely powerful group this time with a high diversity in business areas and the way they focus on sound”, explains CEO at Sound Hub Denmark Peter Petersen. “It’s been exceptionally hard to deselect among the applicants, as they all have a really strong case.
