How does it work?
List your thesis topic
Bachelor, Candidate and Master students from all universities in Denmark can list their thesis topic on Excelerate. The listings are anonymous, to avoid biases towards gender, ethnicity and age.
Invite your student group members to Excelerate and add them to your common thesis topic so the company can see all the profiles they eventually would engage with.

Excelerate FAQ for students
Yes and no. Excelerate is the medium for students and companies to meet in order to get a thesis collaboration started. Excelerate does not offer jobs and is neither a jobsite but it is free for students to sign up and use Excelerate.
However, the thesis collaboration also works as a pre-recruiting service. Meaning that the companies can use the thesis collaboration to get to know you, the student, your competencies and then make a job offer after the collaboration has ended if they see you as a fit.
A thesis topic is what you, the student, upload on Excelerate’s website, which contains a thorough description of the thoughts on your thesis. The thesis topic is used for companies to search for which students they would like to work with on a thesis collaboration.
After you have listed your thesis topic, companies can see the topic on Excelerate – they will reach out to you. It is not the students who reach out to the companies to begin with. However, if a company reaches out to you, you can reply when a connection is made.
Yes! And it is actually important that you invite your thesis group members to the platform, and your thesis topic, so companies can see how many students they potentially will collaborate with. You invite your thesis group members when signed in on Excelerate and then you can invite them when editing your thesis topic under the “Members” section.
The time before a company reaches out to a student or a group varies a lot, it can take days, weeks or a month. It depends on how relevant companies see your thesis topic. However, new companies are continuously joining the platform, so be patient.
