In conversation with Andreas Wuerfel
This week, we welcomed 10 new teams into the METRO Accelerator, powered by Techstars family. As per usual, the METRO events team found a uniquely fitting venue to cater the occasion.
We were hosted in B.HORN, a cool little restaurant bar in Neukölln, an up and coming and exciting part of Berlin.
I caught up with Andreas Würfel, the CEO of HoReCa Digital Inc to chat about what HoReCa Digitial and METRO are doing in the world of startups. Andreas is the guy who is responsible for building alumni support community around the METRO Accelerator programs
These 10 new Hospitality focused startups are joining program NO.4 of the METRO Accelerator and Techstars Partnership.
We now have two separate programs together with METRO in Berlin. One for Retail, which just finished it’s first class last week and a program for Hospitality which we’ve just started class number three.
METRO and Techstars now have made investments in over 40 companies in the HoReCa (Hotel/Restaurant/Catering) space. For them, its “the ability to have conversations early on” with their customers to find out what technologies they need to succeed in the and to really help build out the next wave of platforms that will manage the world of hotels, restaurants and catering.
Techstars has applications open for 10 programs around the world 🚀
From Boulder to Dubai, Austin to Boston, NYC to Seattle and Anywhere in between, including Techstars Anywhere, our mostly-virtual accelerator!
