RESPOND is the first accelerator that pushes for the transformation towards a regenerative economy and promotes responsible leadership.

The RESPOND Accelerator is an international startup accelerator program that systematically advances how entrepreneurs lead, grow, and scale sustainable businesses. It is the first accelerator program that promotes both responsible leadership and sustainable business models in line with the UN 2030 Agenda. The program is operated together with UnternehmerTUM in Munich.

We support founders through coaching and mentoring, leadership development, our global network and brand visibility – free of charge and without taking equity. Out of 5.000+ screened ventures and 1.000+ applications, 30 startups from 13 countries were selected for RESPOND so far.

Cohort#4 is active between May - October 2023.
