    Register for our program

    YouMediaMatters, the Dutch innovation accelerator in media, has opened round 2 of 2017 for startups and scale-ups. We are looking for international oriented startups and scale-ups that can provide added value for media companies and are active in the areas of content, advertising and technology.
    MediaMatters offers startups and scale-ups access to the Dutch market to expand their business. They will be able to connect to some of the leading media companies in the Netherlands and get the opportunity to develop new business with the participating media companies as launching partner. Intensive coaching and training are part of the program. For more information about our program, please visit this page.
    Untill now six companies are participating in the 2017 program: the public broadcasters NPO, AVROTROS and EO, the biggest news publisher in the Netherlands, Persgroep Nederland, the newspaper Nederlands Dagblad and the weekly De Groene Amsterdammer. The challenges they face differ, but all have in common that they are looking for new ways to better engage with existing audiences and finding new and younger audiences.
    Innovative startups and scale-ups that offer solutions that can help media companies cope with these challenges, are invited to apply for the MediaMatters program. If you are enthusiastic about working together with media companies on the ‘next big thing in media’, please contact MediaMatters.


    Terms and conditions: MediaMatters is not a typical accelerator and doesn't ask any equity from startups. We give startups a choice: either pay € 2.500 for participation in the program or agree to a succes fee of 15% of all deals (contract value year 1) that come out of the program.


    Deadline: you can apply till Friday September 15.
