We are thrilled to announce Techstars Class 169 and share the first 10 companies of Techstars Lisbon in partnership with Semapa Next. This year, our program will focus on companies that are solving problems in manufacturing, transportation, logistics, sustainability, and travel and leisure.
Our inaugural class represents a great deal of diversity. We received hundreds of applications from all over the world! The companies that have been selected to join us for this year’s program in Lisbon are coming from the U.S., U.K., Australia, Germany, France, Slovenia, Singapore, and Portugal. We have software and hardware companies, mostly B2B, but also B2C. They range from low revenue to millions in revenues, from no funds raised to millions of funds raised to cash-flow positive.
We guarantee you that you are going to fall in love with these teams and their passion to change the world—just like we did. We look forward to the next three months of intense work, life-changing moments, and new friendships, culminating into our very first demo day on May 29, 2019.
Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and mentors make this happen. The sole focus of Techstars and Semapa Next will be to help these 10 companies grow, with the support of our partners and our amazing mentor network.
Last but not least, we’d like to say “thank you” to our mentors, sponsors, partners, and alumni for their amazing support and their commitment to #givefirst—with a special thank you to the team at Semapa Next for their invaluable commitment to the success of our partnership.
Without further ado, here are the Techstars Lisbon in partnership with Semapa Next 2019 companies:
