Techstars Berlin looks for companies that are actively seeking out opportunities to work closely with the Managing Director (Jag Singh, who's one of the most active angel investors in Europe), the Techstars program team, alumni, and also the wider Techstars Berlin mentor pool. We also like companies that are looking to set a foothold in Berlin and leverage its status as a gateway to the rest of Europe.

Udo Schloemer, Founder and CEO of Factory Berlin, said:  “Berlin has one of the most inclusive and diverse startup ecosystems in the world. You don’t need a German passport or an Ivy League diploma to succeed here: the Berlin startup scene is open for business and welcomes founders and talents from everywhere.”

Naren Shaam, CEO of GoEuro, said of the Berlin startup ecosystem: “The city is full of the energy needed to drive tech businesses like GoEuro forward. It has the right ingredients to scale a business, including access to capital, good education and training opportunities.”
