The MATES Academy aims to support your personal and professional growth in the creative industry. In doing so, we don’t want to compete with established training methods or learning platforms. In fact, we want to create an offer that is oriented towards real challenges of the future.

Hence, our concept is based on the Sharing Principle: Our experts are specialists directly derived from our network who are willing to share their know-how and their experiences with others. That way, you can learn from industry experts and expand your network at the same time.

Do you have specific challenges within your company or are you looking for Workshop formats to foster and motivate your staff? We’re happy to help. Thanks to our big network of experts we are able to develop individual formats that help you to exploit your full potential. Send us an e-Mail to hello@mates-muenchen.de.


The courses of the MATES Academy are targeted especially towards newcomers and freelancers from the creative industry, but also towards employees from startups or established companies, that seek to specifically deepen or expand their skill set.

Therefore, we offer a variety of courses/workshops, whereby we ensure that the content of these courses is relevant and contemporary and fulfills different needs appropriately. Decide for yourself, which skills are important for your professional success!

For companies/agencies we offer individual workshop formats that perfectly meet their current needs. If you need to prepare a team for a specific project or to inform your employees about trends in digitalization – we are sure to find the right expert and the right format for you.

Skills that prepare you perfectly for your role as entrepreneur.

Skills that help you to refine your creative profile and therewith, stand out from the competition.

Skills that support you to understand and serve your customers even better.

Skills that enable you to have your finger always on the pulse of current affairs and to actively shape the digital transformation.

Skills that empower you as person.
