Claudio Geyken
Founder & Ceo, RiDERgy
“Through the accelerator we got connected to relevant experts, from industry, investors, entrepreneurs, even customers in a very efficient way according to our needs which allowed us to iterate faster. We were invited to some exclusive events; a special highlight was the demo day at UnternehmerTUM in Munich.”
Mark Bagdy
Founder and CEO, Tourmix Delivery
“The accelerator was the first time we could talk with other startups out of our region. This opportunity on its own would have made the whole program worth it. We not only got to know how other teams work, what motivation they have and what path they follow, but also made new friendships. Moreover we could talk to different cities across the union and they have also expressed their interest in our model. We understood how different markets can be also in the union and are preparing ourselves to give an answer to these culture differences.”
