The best advice that I have been
given at Emma is to really go for it;
don't wait for any type of confirmation.
Even if it goes wrong, you are still
learning from it, and you can recover
quickly and make it into a success story.
Ready to lead, disrupt and reinvent the sleep industry?

Are you interested in tech, innovation, and think you might have ideas on how to turn a great night into an even greater day? Well, then we are here for you! We are one of Europe’s fastest growing startups, the world’s leading D2C sleep brand and on a mission to help more people unlock the power of a great night’s sleep. We offer you the chance to work on your sleep product idea within Emma Sleep Innovation Accelerator!
Who can apply?
- Anyone interested in joining an agile, fast-growing tech startup, including university students, recent graduates or people with relative experience in any field including engineering, science, design or business. This is your chance to grow while working on your own idea. Are you ready to improve how millions of people sleep? Then apply now.
What is in it for you?
- Translating ideas into products is easier said than done. On top of coming up with a brilliant idea, you need investment, great teammates, strategic guidance and finally an access to your future customers. Good news is that, if you truly believe in your idea and have the drive to realize it, we can take care of the rest!
- This is also an opportunity to work side by side with seasoned professionals at Emma to gain the necessary experience. While taking an idea all the way to a physical product, you will face many challenges and learn from mistakes! We believe that is what matters most!
How does it work?
- You can apply individually or as a team. In addition to great ideas and entrepreneurial spirit, we are looking for individuals with a special talent or knowledge in a certain area relevant for product development. Even if you apply individually, through our program, you’ll have the chance to meet exceptional teammates from various fields that complement your background, pitch your idea as a team, and if selected, work on it together.
Your journey in a nutshell:
- Personal interviews after we receive your applications
- Workshop & networking event to meet your cohort and form your multidisciplinary team
- Pitch event: share and discuss your product idea with a business plan in mind
- And launch the project!
- Once you join us, you’ll be supported at every step by dedicated advisors, in-demand trainings and master classes by our strong entrepreneurial people, who’ll help you turn your innovative idea into a real-life product. You will, of course, receive a funding for the project and a monthly salary for each member of the team!
- We will have set milestones to help you stay on the track. Every 3 months Emma Innovation Board will meet and discuss your progress and the next steps.
- In the end of the 6 months program, we expect you to have a prototype or a minimum viable product. From there on, you will become a permanent team at Emma, and we will all help you in getting the product to customers. We know this sounds challenging, but we are confident that it can be done!

- A short description of your idea (max. 150 words)
