As a content startup, we were looking for an accelerator that could support us both with publicity for our young team as well as with content-focused expertise. By participating in CONTENTshift, we are not only gaining prominent jury members as coaches, we are also gaining access to a unique network of publishers and content professionals. We became aware of the programme through the "Startupdates Newsletter". Marc Süß and Michael Schmitt

Our founding story:
The two co-founders Michael and Marc combine their expertise in technology and creativity in digital product solutions. They met during their masters studies at Steinbeis SMI Berlin and have worked together in various constellations ever since, most recently at their joint design and innovation company Gravitales in Hamburg.
From out of their shared expertise in online and content marketing, they discovered the need for a content automation solution for SMEs; the result was Sigmund Talks. Their shared vision is to empower people and brands in the digital era to successfully tell their stories.
How my business idea changes the content industry:
