By Jag Singh, Managing Director of Techstars Berlin Accelerator
Today, I can finally reveal the companies in the 2021 Techstars Berlin Accelerator class. These founders have inspired us amidst the global economic, political, and social uncertainty by engaging with mentors, the program team, and one another over the last three months
They’ve each made an incredible amount of progress, de-risked their businesses by proving and disproving many core assumptions, and bringing their A-game to every single Zoom call. I couldn’t be prouder of this class of founders for seizing the opportunity, at this incredible moment.
Today’s Demo Day is a chance for these companies to showcase their growth and future plans, so be sure to check out their pitches via https://demoday.techstars.com/berlin-2021-t1 and get in touch with them via the site, if you can help.
If you’ve ever wondered what happens behind the scenes of an accelerator, when founders are faced with the task of condensing all that progress into a two minute pitch, you’ll definitely want to check out our new podcast series, The Lead Up.
Each episode will feature one company from this year’s class where each founder will discuss what’s really going through their minds at each stage of building a business in an accelerator, while preparing for the big reveal to investors and the community.
Here are the companies we’re excited to reveal:
