During the 20-week international program, the selected startups receive intensive mentoring and coaching from TechFounders partners and work closely with one of the industry partners on a specific project. Accelerator partners are Datev, ALDI Nord and ALDI SÜD, Miele and ADAC.
In addition to startup financing of 25,000 euros, the participants are mentored by industry experts, experienced founders, investors and scientists. TechFounders does not charge any fees and does not take equity.
