By Martin Schilling, Managing Director of Techstars Berlin
Delivering beer to your doorsteps will not solve the big questions of our time. Renewable energy communities, carbon credit markets, AI solutions for vertical indoor farming and self-sovereign-identity management platforms might.
To this end, Techstars Berlin is partnering with the next generation of early-stage founders of Europe in the areas of Climate Tech, Deep Tech, and FinTech/Digital Assets. The startup class that we announce today has one thing in common: relentless perseverance united with a personal passion to make the world a better place.
We are incredibly excited to partner again with these courageous pioneers of our time.
The Berlin Techstars team assessed ~7000 startups and led ~600 calls with founders. Together with our partners Lakestar, Project A, Redalpine, Cherry Ventures, Angel Invest, embedded/capital, Digital+ Partners, WLOUNGE, and many of our superstar mentors, we have selected a class of 35 rockstar founders from 13 startups.
