Announcing Techstars Class 153! We are super thrilled to announce the ten companies joining the METRO Accelerator, powered by Techstars.

We kicked off last week (November 5th) and we are looking forward to three months of awesomeness, capped off by Demo Day mid February 2019.

This year, we attracted companies from eight countries, including Croatia, Italy, Germany, France, South Korea, UK, Israel and India.

Our one and only goal is to support and grow these ten incredible companies. Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and mentors help make this happen. The METRO Accelerator program provides mentorship, access to METRO, its executives and its customers.

The next 14 weeks will be filled with mentoring, pitching and growth!

I would like to thank our mentors, sponsors, partners and alumni for their generous support. Special thanks to the team at METRO for their true commitment to the success of our partnership.
