About The Birdhouse

Our Vision

“Together we stand strong” 

Connecting and reaching goals together, that's what The Birdhouse is about. Our accelerator supports entrepreneurs by connecting them with the right people in an ambitious environment. Combining the forces of co-founders, partners, mentors and investors, we aim to leave our mark on the ecosystem through an open network in which enterprise and ambitious ideas take flight.

Our Pride

"By Entrepreneurs, For Entrepreneurs"

The Birdhouse team consists solely of entrepreneurs. As a result, we know all about running a company. The Birdhouse has come a long way and achieved a great deal, and we're proud of it. Subsidies & corporate sponsorships? No thanks. We prefer building a productive business model that brings together investors, companies, start-ups and scale-ups. Durably, the way it's supposed to be done.
