We are very excited to announce Techstars Class 162 of the BSH Future Home Accelerator Powered by Techstars in Munich! Our program is focused on smart home innovation, with a special attention given this year to the connected kitchen.

Companies from all over the world have applied to this new program. We’re delighted to announce that the 10 companies we’ve selected to join the BSH Future Home Accelerator Powered by Techstars in Munich will be coming from the U.K., U.S., China, and Korea. About half of the companies selected are working on a hardware product, while the remaining half are pure digital players—all focused on improving our lives in the comfort of our homes.

We had an amazing social kickoff over the weekend and are looking forward to the next three months of intense work, life-changing collisions, and new friendships, culminating into our very first Demo Day on May 9, 2019.

Techstars is the worldwide network that helps entrepreneurs succeed, and strong partners and mentors help make this happen. The sole focus of Techstars and BSH Home Appliances will be to help these 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—a special thank you to the team at BSH Home Appliances for their invaluable commitment to the success of our partnership.
