This week, we welcomed 10 new teams into the METRO Accelerator for Hospitality, Powered by Techstars family. As per usual, the METRO events team found a uniquely fitting venue to cater the occasion.
We were hosted in B.HORN, a cool little restaurant bar in Neukölln, an up and coming and exciting part of Berlin.
I caught up with Andreas Wuerfel, the CEO of HoReCa Digital Inc to chat about what HoReCa Digital and METRO are doing in the world of startups. Andreas is the guy who is responsible for building the alumni support community around the METRO Accelerator programs.
These 10 new Hospitality focused startups are joining the fourth class of the METRO Accelerator and Techstars partnership.
We now have two separate programs together with METRO in Berlin. One for retail, which just finished its first class last week and a program for hospitality, which just kicked off.
METRO and Techstars have made investments in over 40 companies in the HoReCa (Hotel/Restaurant/Catering) space. For them, it’s “the ability to have conversations early on” with their customers to find out what technologies they need to succeed and to really help build out the next wave of platforms that will manage the world of hotels, restaurants and catering.
From Boulder to Dubai, Austin to Boston, NYC to Seattle and Anywhere in between, including Techstars Anywhere, our mostly-virtual accelerator!
