ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator Cooperates with Equity-Based Crowdfunding Platform Companisto



Two start-ups from the accelerator program of ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG will simultaneously start their crowdfunding campaigns on Companisto on 15 January 2015

Berlin, 15 January 2015 – The start-up accelerator program of the Munich media corporation ProSiebenSat.1 is cooperating with Berlin-based crowdfunding platform Companisto.The start-ups Jaimie Jacobs and Pablo & Paul – both of them participants of the ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator – will start searching for investors on 15 January 2015 and rely on the Companisto crowd for their next financing round.

"We believe that both start-ups have the right business model to convince the Companisto crowd and thus pave the way for fast growth," says Dr. Jens Pippig, managing director of the P7S1 accelerator. "Also," says Dr. Pippig, "this cooperation agreement emphasizes that the ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator also supports its start-ups very actively after the end of the 3-month program in order to help them succeed."

Through this partnership between one of the major European media corporations and one of the major equity-based crowdfunding platforms in Europe, both companies combine their strengths in various areas and may thus provide founders with ideal conditions for successful company development.

"Just like the ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator, Companisto also focuses on strengthening the European start-up scene and on supporting the most innovative European start-ups," says Tamo Zwinge, managing director of Companisto. "In addition to providing financing, both Companisto and the ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator support start-ups through their considerable expertise, marketing channels, and large networks. Thus, this partnership makes a lot of sense," Zwinge summarizes the project.
