DB mindbox
The home of the Deutsche Bahn accelerator

Deutsche Bahn’s accelerator is located in Berlin with a spectacular view to the river Spree. The S-Bahn runs along the roofline of the office and boats float past in the canal, right next to the desks. Participants of the accelerator program significantly contribute to the digitization of Deutsche Bahn.

The core of DB mindbox is the accelerator program. Deutsche Bahn offers startups with innovative ideas and technologies 25,000 euro and a coworking space for three months without taking any equity. As a member of the accelerator program, startups get the unique opportunity to test their prototypes within the Deutsche Bahn environment. They are granted access to DB data, infrastructure, trains and guidance from experts. Empowered startups from the program become able to elevate their prototypes to the next level and disrupt parts of the Deutsche Bahn business.
