Speed-Impulse: Start-up funding with MediaStart on 12. August 2024

Funding for young media companies independent of projects - this is what the MEDIAstart start-up initiative from Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung (MDM) offers media makers from Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt. If you have a special start-up idea in the media sector, be it in classic audio-visual media, new media, games or as a service provider, take a look at the program! It's exciting for anyone who founded a company after January 1, 2022. Interested parties will get direct first-hand information and the opportunity to ask questions at the Speed-Impuls

on 12.08.2024, 9:30 - 11:00 a.m. | online via Zoom

In this Speed Impulse, participants will learn all about MEDIAstart from Maria Linsel and Franziska Wellner (MDM). They will give tips on the application process and answer questions. This much can be revealed: The funding includes financial support of up to 1,000 euros per month as well as customized knowledge to successfully establish and assert themselves on the market. MEDIAstart participants can expect workshops on useful industry knowledge, opportunities to build a network and an individually selected mentor during the twelve-month period.

The Speed-Impuls takes place in cooperation with Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung GmbH (MDM) and MENT - Mediennetzwerk Thüringen e.V.
